If you are looking for a way to bookmark the links you share on twitter then Packrati.us is the solution. It is a service that monitors your Twitter account and posts the tweets that contain links to your Delicious account. No need to bookmark them separately. To sync your accounts you need to connect and authorize both your Twitter & Delicious accounts with this service.

It has got some nice options in the preferences section. You can tell it to expand the short URL of link in the tweet while posting it to Delicious. It can also replace your existing bookmarks if any.

If you want to add tags to the posted bookmarks then you could have it accept the hashtags as Delicious tags. It also allows you to bookmark links selectively. For example, you can set it to bookmark only those tweets which contain particular hashtags or only those URLs which are in the @replies to you.
