In a day and age where everything from YouTube
are vying for both our free and shouldn't-be-free time, it's great to see a company like Remember the Milk
figuring out an ingenious way to help keep our daily tasks organized while we're
goofing off or micro-blogging with Twitter
. On the company's blog today, RTM announced
not only that they have a Twitter account of their own, but that you can actually get some clever use out of it. By adding the RTM Twitter account
as a friend and then direct messaging it with a specific syntax they have put together, you can actually create tasks, send tasks to friends and even command tasks (mark them as complete, get an SMS of a list's tasks, etc.). This is a stellar way of combining such a dynamic service as Twitter with a way of being productive, and all it requires is some simple linking of your RTM account with your Twitter username.
Fortunately, both Twitter and Remember the Milk are free to sign up for, giving you a valid way to justify all that time you spend on Twitter to your boss.Thanks Chris!
