To help keep users ever more in-the-know, Twitter has rolled out a new mobile notification that offers personalized recommendations for accounts to follow and tweets to check out.
The new feature, available for Twitter for Android and Twitter for iPhone users via push notification, builds on experimental Twitter account @MagicRecs, which sends instant, personalized recommendations for users via DM.
When you hit “update” on your smartphone’s Twitter app, get ready for some snazzy new updates – and for your phone to start pinging with additional notifications.
Last night Twitter announced an update to their notifications system so that you now get an email each time somebody that you follow retweets or favourites one of your tweets.
Email notifications have been a huge boon for Facebook because they keep those all-important users coming back to the platform again, and again, and again. For Twitter, which has always had a problem converting and keeping new signups, this could and should be huge. When you’re beginning your journey on a social network, you positively yearn for attention. An email letting you know that somebody has connected with you in some way is very welcome.
But what about people who aren’t new? What about those people who get dozens and dozens of replies, retweets and favourites each and every day? What about those people who don’t like email notifications from Facebook, and have long-since turned them off? And what about those people who consistently strive for the ever-desirable inbox zero?
If that sounds like you, then Twitter’s notifications are a total pain in the derriere, falling somewhere between clutter and spam. Here’s how to get rid of them.
