Twitter Favourites

How do you use the Favourite option on Twitter?

I don't think this is how it's supposed to be used, but since I am now following over 200(!) tweeps, I can't always read things as soon as I see the link. So I have TweetDeck on my phone, which I use to monitor tweets on an hourly basis.

If I see a link that I want to read, I favourite it and then, when I have time, I go onto my PC and  read whatever is on the other side of the link. At that point I unfavourite it, but if I think it's worth keeping (and let's face it, with the people tweeting out there, it generally is worth keeping) I'll add it to Diigo.

The flaw with this MO is that I frequently don't retweet, because it's been a while since the original was tweeted. I must try harder at that.

So tell me, what do you use favouriting for?
