Include list when adding tasks

rickypc says:
Twitter integration with RTM is really amazing. However, one thing that's quite tedious is having all the tasks show up in INBOX; and then manually forwarding them to individual lists.

The twitter integration should be able to send tasks directly to a particular list. This could be done by the following syntax:

# task

So, I could do things like:

#work email John
#home fix windows

Many thanks for the wonderful site!

I agree, this would be nice. Although, for multiple-word tasks, this could lead to some ambiguity if someone's just trying to default to the inbox (e.g. "email John" adds task "John" to list "email," if it exists). So maybe some kind of delimiter would be better, e.g. -

# email John --work

nluchs - you are right. Having a delimiter would make it better.

RTM development folks, interested?
