I put the stitch holder or needle tip to tip with the needle the sts are on and just slide them from one to another. When you take them off the holder, do it the same way, or just knit off the holder.

Based on what suzeeq and others have said and my own experience, I think all that matters is that when you get around to working the stitches that have been held is that you don't want to work them twisted.
