Can no longer add tasks via twitter

zeroid says:
I had twitter setup nicely last week so I could add tasks by direct message and this was all working nicely until a couple of days ago.

Direct messages I send to rtm to add tasks are ignored, they don't appear in RTM and I don't get any response. Anyone else experiencing the same problem?

Yes me, and it's driving me crazy. It's the best way to update RTM on the move. Please someone fix it!!

Thanks for investigating. I am really looking forward to this getting resolved because it's driving me crazy.

Here are some observations:
- I can add a task from the RTM web interface and I receive the reminder via twitter
- A "d rtm" twitter message vanishes when I send it via text message OR from the twitter site's messages page [http://twitter.com/#!/messages]
- A "d " twitter message to any other twitter user gets delivered successfully

Thank you for looking into this problem. I am having the same thing. The sms integration feature via twitter is the value added feature above other competitors: google tasks, gsuite, etc. Please let us know what we can do to help. Thank you for your faithful service all these years.

I don't understand why this is taking so long, and is just "on the list to investigate". I keep losing tasks because twitter integration is not working and I assume it is.

Yeah, same here. I notice rtm is no longer following me. Curious if that is the problem for others as well?

I successfully sent a task to twitter via SMS in the last hour. Going to test some more, but it looks like it could be fixed!

biancolo,
That seems to be the problem for some users; other problems are that it's not replying with confirmations and not adding tasks. All likely revolve around the same issue, and we're looking into this.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

rtm is still following me on twitter, and I still receive reminders from rtm so the problem is only one way for me.

Do others have different behaviour? e.g. not receiving reminders (if you have this feature enabled) vs rtm not following?

zeroid,
The problem mainly seems to be in any actions that require a response from RTM (e.g. following back or confirming added tasks).

wilfredo_ramos,
It seems @rtm isn't sending updates to connected accounts; however, tasks added via Twitter should still be added to your account.

I've added this to our list to investigate; sorry for the inconvenience.
