You want to remove it as quickly as possible.  If the paint starts to skim over and you pull the tape it's possible to pull some of the paint off with it.

 

Personally, I avoid the stuff unless there's not another option.  I just painted the skirt board of a set of oak tread steps and used maybe 2 feet of tape on the whole job.  If find a steady hand and good brush works just as well.  Any little mistakes can be cleaned up with a damp rag wrapped around a 5-in-1 tool.
