Currently, if somebody has blocked you, you can't react to their messages at all. I think this should be changed to allow reacting to reactions that have already been placed by other people. Much like how the reaction permission is in servers. You can't add new ones, but you can add on to ones that already are there.
Tap and hold the message. A pop-up menu will appear. If you can't find the message you want to react to, you can search for it. Tap ⁝ at the top-right side of the screen and select Search, then enter your criteria. When the message appears in the search results, tap Jump to Chat, then tap and hold the message.
On Discord servers, you get a “Blocked Message” dropdown when someone you blocked sends a message. Obviously, your ignoring them is a good tell too. All in all, their blocking system is hit or miss and sometimes doesn't save you from harassment. Alt accounts are easily created without any proper login details.
Discord uses Twemoji, provided by Twitter. You can use those emojis to react to messages directly. The way that Discord expects those emojis however is that they have to be the unicode character, not the "text".
This is a blue button on the right-hand side of the SERVER EMOJI page. It will open a list of available upload methods on a pop-up menu. Tap Documents or Gallery. This option will allow you to select and upload an image file from your Android, and use it as an emoji in the chat.
It's a feature that is so easy to use, it's a travesty that more people aren't aware of it. If you reply with a Tapback to someone using Android—in other words, if their messages have a green bubble instead of a blue bubble—that person will receive the Tapback as a text message.
