Look at http://www.emojixpress.com/stats/. The stats are different, since
they collect data from keyboards not twitter posts, but they have a nice
button to view only the news emoji.

(The numbers on the new ones will be smaller, just because it takes time
for systems to support them, and people to start using them. However, they
bear out my predication that the most popular would be the eyes-rolling
