With the new Twitter layout, the currently accepted answer no longer works.

Now you need to first Open a tweet in your feed by clicking on the Open link in the upper right, or by clicking in any of the whitespace of the tweet which is any non-link areas.

The permalink for the post is now the Details link which should be roughly in the lower middle of the tweet just to the right of the date and the via segments.
