Sort most recently used emojis on top
It would be a mercy to put a user's most recently used emojis at the top of the emoji selection widget. This is a common user interface convenience from other messaging platforms and also smartphones.
It's comparatively laborious to give a :thumbsup: for instance, because the naive alphabetical sorting puts a half-dozen emojis (which I've never used) above the menu item I want.
This needs to be implemented

This is the exact emoji that always catches me.

With ":thu" typed in, the "thumbs down" emoji comes up first and I need to type out ":thumbsu" to get the "thumbs up" emoji, which I can imagine is one of the most used emojis. This makes me very sad!

I had the same idea
