copypastercharacter is a great help. Just click on the character, and it's loaded onto your clipboard, ready for pasting. A comparable service is Twitterkeys, which also provides this example of how we may write:
“I’m going to ✈ to ☭ in the morning after I make a ☎ to make sure my ♂ is ✔ with it. ✌ for now and don’t forget to ✍ and lets have ♨ soon!”
The end is near.
