What is the point of the Twitter Favorite Button?

Have you noticed that link on Twitter that says ‘Favorite’?

What is the purpose of this and how can you use it?

The favorite link allows you to save a tweet for reading later or keeping it as a reference for future use. I find that when I am reading tweets on my Blackberry or computer and find that if I don’t have the time to respond to it then marking it as a favorite is very useful. I am more likely to do this when on my Blackberry and a link to a web page or YouTube video is displayed. When you have a convenient moment you can look up your stored favorites and read the tweets and follow any links.

You can find your favorites on Twitter.com on your profile page from the tab displayed there.
