    Have you enabled it in your settings? Are you talking about Twitter for iPhone or are you talking about a 3rd party app?

    Not to get off the subject, but that is interesting to me. I was thinking iOS 5 had as they put it "deep" integration. But, you still need the app for notifications and to read them? Good to know!

    Yes, you definitely need the app to receive notifications. But, the Twitter app has very a beautiful UI, and you can use multiple accounts from whatever device you're on. Personally, because of this integration, I have begun to use Twitter more and found it to be much more helpful than I had thought. I'm starting to like Twitter over Facebook even.

    Everyone will get the hang of iOS 5. There's really quite a bit to learn, and even after running the beta for all this time, I still find surprises here and there.

    The twitter integration is for you to post to twitter but you still need the app to go see posts and to get notifications.

    So, under notification settings you have the following for Twitter:
    -"Notification Center" switched to on
    -Either Banners or Alerts selected
    -Badge App Icon switched to on
    -Sounds switched to on?

    I just switched from BlackBerry to iPhone 4. I have been trying to get twitter notification to function since getting the device, I have tried ALL the suggetions mentioned here and on other forums, I have tried deleting the app as well as the account and still nothing, It never even asks for permission to push notifications. Can someone PLEASE tell me what I am doing wrong? everything is set correctly I have even gone into the "Apple" store and they said I have it set up correctly and all my notifications are set correctly. so what gives......

    Default Solution?

    Hi - not sure if anyone is still having this Twitter push notification problem, but I just stumbled across a little menu in the Twitter app itself Accounts>Settings>Notifications. Both the options were somehow disabled on mine after iOS5 upgrade, so it was just a case of turning them back on. Hope this helps, it was bugging the hell out of me!

    If anyone still cares...you apparently need to turn on notifications for every single person you follow. Kind of a pain but I guess it gives more flexibility. I'm surprised no one else knew that.

    That's only true if you want notifications every time they tweet something—which for most people would be WAY too many notifications. (Imagine getting an alert for every tweet in your timeline every day.) You don't need to do that for @mentions or DMs.

    Default Twitter App Notifications not working after iOS 6.1

    Hello


    I see some people on here have had trouble getting Push Notifications to work on the Twitter App for iPhone. I have just upgrade to ver iOS 6.1 on a iPhone 3gs 16gb
    and are also having trouble as other people are having. basically i switch the option on inside the Twitter Application on my iPhone but as soon as i come out of the Settings menu
    and lock my phone the option seems to switch it self to OFF and i have to go back in to the app and switch it back on. I had previously switched on Notifications on every one i follow but have read on here that means i get everything that person tweets so have switch that option OFF now, but still.

    Can some one tell me why my Notifications option keeps switching it self off when i lock my screen

    please reply to here smdodgson1968@gmail.com

    thanks

    I have to agree with Massie 100% as I found this out myself the hard way and I even had sounds turned off. I got to the point that I deleted the app and just went with the new Twitteriffic 5 for iPhone w/o Push notifications which is just fine with me. This way I can open the app and read the Tweets when I want to.

    iMore just did an extensive review of this app by Rene Richie and also speaking to one of the dev staff members I went with it and just love it. you might give it a try.

    But you know you can turn off those notifications in the native app, right? Not sure why you felt like you had to delete it?

    Massie yes I did know this and thanks for answering my post. I suppose I could have completly turned off all individual notifications in the Native App and not have the hassle and read the Tweets when I wanted. I suppose even I forget sometimes and even though I DID turn them off I just deleted the app.

    Anyway now that i have Twitterffic 5 for iPhone w/o push notifications I just like the UI, Features and overall app so I will be using it. Have you tried it yet yourself? Very nice app.

    Thanks my friend...

    Been hearing good things but I definitely need notifications, so I'll just stick with the official app.

    Well I am happy to hear that what you are using you like. Just out of curiosity with regard to notifications, Do you have alot turned on and does it not drive you crazy at times? I had sound turned off and just checked my lock screen from time to time but it really I at least found ran my battery down pretty good. Do you notice that at all?

    What are you under in Twitter so I can follow you if you don't mind and you follow me. you can link from my profile here.

    I don't use notifications for individual tweets, only for @replies and DMs. So I only get notified if someone interacts with me, not every time they tweet.

    You already follow me on twitter btw!
