I have a character counter for my textarea that was working great until I added EmojiOne Area. The emoji picker now works great, but my character counter stopped working. For some reason the keyup is no longer working off of the ID.

HTML

<textarea id="message" class="form-control" placeholder="Enter text here..."></textarea> 
<label><span id="chars" class="lead">140</span></label> characters left

JavaScript

/*emojioneArea */
$(document).ready(function() {
  $("#message").emojioneArea({
    pickerPosition: "bottom",
    tonesStyle: "bullet"
  });
});

/*Character Counter */
function countChar(val) {
  var len = val.value.length;

  if (len >= 140) {
    val.value = val.value.substring(0, 140);
    $('#stat span').text(0);
  } else {
    $('#stat span').text(140 - len);
  }
}
countChar($('#message').get(0));
$('#message').keyup(function() {
  countChar(this);
});

JSFiddle.
