The fastest way of switching over to .SVG emoji is to use the Twemoji images from Twitter.

If you are not familiar with Github, choose the 'Code' drop-down button and then the 'Download Zip' link.
Step 2 - Upload the files to your server

Unzip the file you download from Github and then upload the folder
to your server. For our example, we will upload it to a folder on your server named
which means that the upload folder with the .SVG images will be
after the upload is done.
Step 3 - Change your
Emoji Style to Twitter

option to "Twitter" since you are using the Twitter Twemoji images.
Step 4 - Change your
Emoji Source option
Change the value of
to your new
folder. Depending on your server config the exact value you use may be a little differerent. Ask your host if you're not sure.
Step 5 - Change your
Emoji source file extension option to SVG
The last step! You've download the current Twemoji images, uploaded them to your server, changed the XF options to 'Twitter' naming convention, now you just need to change the file extension to use "SVG" when serving the files.
