While a lot of the views on these words are subjective, there are some that might seem insensitive. For example, while “Thank you!” might come off for some as enthusiastic, grateful, and excited; to others, it might seem crass or even angry, maybe even as yelling. Though a full thank you and even an emphasized “thank you!” might seem very sincere to me, it might also come across as an annoyance to you. Now, on the opposite side of the spectrum, you might find the phrase “TY” to be rude, which is perfectly understandable. It’s a short phrase, just two letters, with not much effort put into it. On the other hand, some might find this response, to be perfectly acceptable, often because it saves on time with the same message being conveyed.

On another note, giving your gratitude with a lot of emoticons, at least to me, seems like it’s totally insincere. Emoticons in their entirety seem unprofessional and often give the air that you are making light of your subject matter. It could give the air that you don’t entirely care for what you are speaking of and like the conversation seems like a joke to you more than anything.
