twtxt feeds often include emoji, which can cause problems for standard builds of Tcl 8.

What twtxt.tcl
Description This repository contains a basic Tk-based viewer for twtxt feeds and libraries for:
— Parsing twtxt (Tcl 8.5+ with partial support for Jim Tcl);
— Extracting emoji and displaying them in a text widget in Tcl/Tk builds that do not support them natively (Tcl 8.6.10+);
— Reading files from the local filesystem and HTTP(S), Gopher, and Gemini servers in a uniform manner (Tcl 8.5+).
