New From Twitter: Real-Time, Interactive Notifications

New From Twitter: Real-Time, Interactive Notifications

Earlier this week Twitter announced a redesign that many felt was a bit too close to the look of its great rival, Facebook. Now, Twitter has introduced another new feature to, real-time notifications, which also appear to be Facebook-like in implementation.

The new notifications appear automatically when another user engages with you on Twitter, and you can respond right within the notification. Of course, Facebook has had notifications pop-up above the interface for some time now, and at first glance this does look like Twitter has borrowed another feature from Mark Zuckerberg’s behemoth.*

Here’s the word from the official blog:

When you’re logged in on, you will receive notifications if someone has replied, favorited or retweeted one of your Tweets. You can also receive notifications for direct messages and new followers. They’re fully interactive, so that you can reply, favorite, retweet, and follow right from the notification. We’ll be rolling this feature out over the coming weeks.
