Tech Tip: Finally, A Use for Twitter

We've been skeptical about Twitter for some time now, we just can't find a use for it. Well Lifehacker has proven us wrong when it pointed us in the direction of Twitter Timer, a way to use Twitter to help you remember all those things you forget to do. What is Timer? It's a Twitter bot that allows you to set an alarm for anything you need to remember. Simply add Timer as your friend, and send it direct messages. For example, need to remember to pay your parking meter? Send Timer the message "d timer 60 minutes check parking meter", and you 'll receive a reminder. It's not completely precise, so you can't depend on it for anything completely time sensitive. But it's definitely made us consider twittering a little more often.
