d timer [# of minutes until reminder] [your message]
This is a clever and useful Twitter bot, but still leaves a few things to be desired. My main complaint is that the timer only understands minutes. Many times, I might want a reminder for days or weeks in the future.
I’d love to see Timer use a syntax similar to gootodo.com, which allows scheduling reminders for days, weeks or even months in advance. It would be simple enough to do; the format could be something like this:
d timer [# of units until reminder][m/d/w] [your message]
If the unit designator is left off, minutes could be implied (allowing backward compatibility).
