So when Google removed the emojis from their own search result titles a couple of weeks ago, I speculated that Bing wouldn’t be far behind in removing emojis from their search results too, and it took them under two weeks to copy Google’s emoji change too.

Added: They still seem to show up for one specific search – “emoji” – and they seem to be restricted to to sites that have “emoji” in the domain name. Similar searches for “smiley” and “emoticon” do not show them.
