Twitter has just released an update to it’s official iOS app that has brought several new features to the app. One of the new features allows users to get push notifications of new tweets and retweets posted by their favorite Twitter users. Here in this post I am going to show you how you can enable and disable push notifications from your favorite Twitter users and get notifications on every tweet they post on the social networking site. Read on for instructions on how to enable push notifications for certain users in Twitter app for iOS.
First of all make sure you are running the latest version of Twitter, i.e version 4.3. If you haven’t updated yet or don’t have the app installed, go ahead and open the App Store to update or download it for free here.
1 ) Open the profile page of the user you want to get push notifcations of tweets from. Make sure you are following the user otherwise you won’t get the ‘Turn on Notifications’ button (to get on the profile tap on the profile pic of the user).
2 ) Now tap on the menu button located on right side of the ‘Following’ button with a user glyph on it.
3 ) From the menu tap on ‘Turn on notifications’.
4 ) Now go to ‘Me’ section of Twitter app from the bar below and then tap on settings.
5 ) From settings page tap on the ‘Notifications’ for your account and then on ‘Tweets’.
6 ) Turn on the push notifications for users you have added by following the method above.
Done! From now on every time the user posts a tweet or retweets someone, you will get a push notification banner just like the one shown in the image below.
To disable push notifications from a user, follow step 4 to step 6 and turn the toggle off instead of on.
