I don't seem to be getting my reminders via twitter. I can add a task, yet any communication back to me is lacking. When I request what is due, no response.

Thanks,

Mark

Same problem here. Since Twitter is my favourite reminder method, this makes me sad.

You can establish an email address to publish to twitter at http://twittermail.com/

Maybe then use that email in RTM ? as a reminder destination ?

Any news on Twitter reminders?

I'm having the same issue. I just set this up Saturday and am testing it out. I can D rtm tasks TO rtm from my twitter account or cellphone but when I request a !getlist to be sent back to me, nothing happens. I get no direct messages back.

I went into my rtm account and turned off my cellphone as a reminder device since I wanted everything to just go through Twitter direct message thinking that might be the problem but I'm still not getting any messages back from RTM.

HELP!

Haven't received RTM reminders either via e-mail or Twitter for months.
I thought the site had closed.
Just checked that my settings were still there and nothing had changed.

Is it something to do with not visiting this site regularly?
has this been happening to other users of RTM?
Posted 12 years ago
pastor.cheatham says:
It would appear the site itself is working. My settings are both on as well. I just sent a few tasks to RTM today and they are there in my inbox like they are supposed to be. It's only when you ask for a list or something should be sent to you...that it's not working.

I'm having the same issue. I can add tasks, but the tasks aren't being sent from Twitter to me. I checked Direct Messages in Twitter and none of the tasks are listed. So the problem is somewhere between RTM and Twitter.

I'm not getting Twitter messages either. I'm able to send tasks via Twitter but RTM isn't reminding me of current tasks.

emily (Remember The Milk) says:
Would it be possible to submit a Twitter issue report via our support system, if you're still experiencing this problem?

We'd love to check this out. There was recently a temporary issue on the Twitter side that may have affected some users, but it looks to be fixed now.

Thanks! :)

jackburnt says:
I submitted an issue report but haven't heard anything. Hopefully they'll have it fixed soon.

I just don't see any messages in my Direct Message box. So it's not even getting to Twitter.

I just tried to send me a reminder and it's still not working.

Confirmed that I can send in tasks via twitter that show up but there are no interactions working (like "d rtm !help" or "d rtm !tips"). Wonder if it is a Twitter issue or a RTM issue.

We've investigated this further, and have found that for some direct messages that we're sending to Twitter's system, the Twitter API is experiencing a problem and not successfully delivering the message.

We've reported the issue to the Twitter folks, so hopefully they'll be able to get things working again soon.

pastor.cheatham says:
Just an FYI. I was able to get lists for the first time on Tuesday. Since then though, I've had no luck. :(

emily (Remember The Milk) says:
Just wanted to update, unfortunately we haven't heard anything back from the Twitter folks about this issue yet. :(

I'm having a similar issue - Twitter receives and forwards the "d rtm" messages fine, they just won't show up in my milk list

huntsterunc says:
I tried to send reminders to rtm via twitter a few days ago. didnt work. Read this post and sighed. 2 mins ago...they all came floodin in like a bunch a banshees.

So I assume it is working now?

I'm able to post tasks to RTM via twitter, but I'm not receiving confirmations back from the twitter rtm account.

This is a bit maddening, because I never know if my quickly-added task made it through to my Inbox or not...

And I think its back down again...

Trying to add twitter as a service right now, and can't seem to get rtm to follow me, so I can't even send the d message.

still having issues on my end. I haven't gotten a list in a week or more. Also, my reminders from RTM aren't sending thru Twitter either?

Still having problems here too. I'm going to try to unfollow @rtm then refollow and see if that'll help.

krissy says:
As far as I'm aware the Twitter problems that Emily mentioned above are still an issue. We're waiting on advice from Twitter as to when everyone will get reminders etc.
Thanks for your patience!

I have a same problem.

mavenman says:
I am having the same issue. I am unable to begin getting updates due to rtm not following me. I have cleared cache, unfollowed and refollowed rtm countless times with the same result "rtm is not following you" when I try to DM rtm.

Thanks RTM staff to your continued effort in resolving this issue.

hippyjim.starbrook says:
same problem here as ahobgood, oleg & mavenman. I can't even get started because I can't send the confirmation code by DM, as RTM is not following me.

looks like this issue is still going on - now, let's hope it's not something stoopid like RTM hitting the api limit......
Posted 12 years ago
oddparity says:
I also can't get started as rtm is not following me and I can't send the confirmation code. Unfollow/refollow doesn't help, nor does deleting and starting over. Wasn't working before the weekend, still isn't working now.

Hi all,

The Twitter issue mentioned above by Emily is still causing problems.

I received an answer that RTM knows there's an issue and they're working on it, but no ETA on a fix.

Three weeks and no news? Shame. This is one of the features that made rtm stand out from other services, but if it's not there...

kim.caloca says:
Aaaahhhh! still nada. I was setting up Locale with my G1 to do beautiful things with this feature, such as get my Target list for me when I'm near my local Target, but RTM is not responding to my tweets. :(

please make it work, pleeeeease?

Thanks Emily for the updates. I wish Twitter would do something. It would seem not a big deal for them. I get direct messages from my Twitter followers (of which you are one of course) but no direct messages back when I ask for lists here.

4/14/09 Still no luck yet :(

sushistudios says:
I'm glad you guys let us test the service before actually paying: I was THIS CLOSE to buy a whole year when I found that I cannot use it with twitter! I'm one of those folks that still miss Sandy and RTW worked great so far.

Thinking if I should spend in a PRO account when I cannot use it with twitter..mmmmmm

sushistudios says:
Well, WHY WON'T WE DEMAND twitter to help RTM folks on this one uh? tweet them to let them know:

emily (Remember The Milk) says:
The original issue in this topic was resolved (thanks Twitter!), but unfortunately was followed by another issue (posted about in this status blog post).

The new issue has now been resolved too. Direct messages and reminders are working again (apparently we were hitting some Twitter limits thanks to our volume of direct messages — whoops! :) Thanks to the Twitter guys for their help in resolving this issue.

If anyone continues to experience problems, please let us know.

Thanks!

sushistudios says:
I just sent a support request, I'm still having the same issue! the issue may be coming again???? or its just me? can post to my RTM account through twitter, but can't even get the verification code!

I'M ABOUT TO CRY!

nwedennisk says:
RTM is now following me on Twitter, and I am able to post tweets to RTM...

HOWEVER, when I specifiy a due date as in "License renewal due 12/2/2009", RTM does not pick up the due date. The RTM instructions for using Twitter seem to indicate that this due date should be picked up. Does anybody have any insight as to why this is not working?

OK, I finally got rtm to follow me on twitter. I can add tasks with no problems, but when I send commands, nothing happens. I tried

d rtm !today, and I never got a response. Is there any way to fix this?

emily (Remember The Milk) says:
Apparently it lasted less than 24 hours. :(

There is again a problem with the Twitter API -- I've posted about this on the status blog. We're waiting on the Twitter folks to fix this -- hopefully it'll be working again soon.
