But now you can't! :P

:P

Personally I would go with closer to, ignore the rules of punctuation if using emoticons. In general, just don't use them on actual things where punctuation matters. :)

I like being able to use emojis in semi-formal writing like emails because they're convenient as succinct tone and formality modifiers. That being said, I certainly wouldn't include them in highly formal writing.
