How To: Get Notifications When a User Posts on Twitter

Have you ever come across the problem where you follow many people and you just hate missing someone’s tweet on Twitter?

I’ve had the problem quite a few number of times, where I used to miss seeing Tweets of people. These tweets could be from anyone. It could be from a celeb you adore, or from people who start enlightening discussions whenever they are on (Eg BT).

Well, if you have the Official Twitter App on your iOS/Android device, you can enable Push Notifications to be displayed when a person tweets.

To enable it.

1. Go into the user’s profile for whom you want to enable tweet notifications.
