By the way, you can also go to the twitter website and subscribe to everyone you follow. It will then send a text message to your phone every time they tweet. You just have to remember to put your cell phone number into your twitter settings.

I dont have an iphone (yet) so I dont know how twitter works with the iphone.. but with my BB 9700, I set the 'refresh' rate to say every 5 minutes or so and then when I open/launch twitter, it refreshes the most recent tweets..
Is this what you mean my "push"?

I don't receive a twitter notification every time someone posts a tweet (I follow a good number of people), but every 15 min or so it gives me the most recent tweet with an appendage at the end " +15more" etc.

On Android, you can set up new tweets from those you follow to show up and specified intervals. I had mine set at every hour. I don't understand why it is different in iOS. To save battery maybe? I'd like that functionality back, but can't get Boxcar to do it consistently.

Has to be by design in iOS. This was a default in Android. I do miss that coming from my Thunderbolt. Not sure why iOS won't let you get tweet notifications unless it is to save on battery. I liked getting notified that I had new tweets to look at. Oh well, different OS different results.

As far as platform is concerned, Apple's SDK doesn't allow applications to actively load data in the background.
Honestly, if you want every tweet, just check Twitter fairly regularly. With good Twitter apps (i.e. Tweetbot, Twitter for iPhone), there is gap detection for you to get all those tweets
