A short time ago, I ran through the routine for quickly creating tasks via I Want Sandy and Twitter. Well, after doing some searching on the Remember the Milk site, I discovered you can do the same thing there. While I tend to prefer I Want Sandy, Remember the Milk is certainly a good to do manager, and can easily manage your task list via Twitter.
It’s a simple process - first make sure you have an account on both services. Then on Twitter, add rtm as a friend. Jump over to the RTM site (here) and follow the directions on the upper right to complete the setup.
When you’re sitting in Twitter and come up with a task that needs done, you can simply enter “d rtm <task>”, without the quotes or the brackets. For example:
d rtm remember to check voicemail at 10am today
Send the message, and you’re done. Since it’s a direct message, nobody else will see it.
An exhaustive list of commands you can send RTM is here.
If you’re using Gmail’s new Quick Shortcuts that let you put any site in the taskbar, head over to Downloadsquad for a quick way to show your tasks in Gmail.
Lastly, don’t forget that if you’ve set up Twitter to receive incoming “tweets” via SMS, you can send those tasks directly to Twitter (SMS # is 40404) the same way you send them via the web interface.
