    Should work fine with the twitter app ( you must download the twitter app from the app store to get push notifications ).

    You mean you want every tweet tweeted by people you follow to get pushed to your phone?

    Look into Boxcar - it's an app for iphone/ipad, it will do what you want. Not ideal, but it's at least part way there.

    My goodness... That would be annoying! I'd throw my phone into a creek.

    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 don't follow a lot of people so it wouldn't be as annoying as it would sound! But ill try it that way!

    you mean when you open Twitter the new tweets get pushed to your phone?

    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"?

    Yep that exactly what I mean.... I use to have a bb storm, and that's the only thing that I miss from my strom..... Hopefully twitter will make a notification push for tweets in the future for iPhone.

    Push means that the tweets would get pushed to the phone WITHOUT having to open the app. Sort of like a text message.

    No...it pushes notifications for when you have new @mentions or replies; what Rudeboy wants is that every tweet from everyone he follows shows up as a new notification on his phone, basically like a text message might.

    For whoever has Boxcar, has it been working for you since iOS5? My boxcar hasn't, it's stopped showing notifications.

    My boxcar is working fine, but I did install it AFTER the iO s5 update... before that I didn't want any push twitter notifications, for I think obvious reasons. Also, I set the notification settings inside the app and in settings, in that order if it helps.

    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.

    Boxcar will only send you new tweets if you create a new service for every user whose tweets you want pushed to you—which only works if those users' timelines aren't protected. Tweetbot won't do it either. I don't know of an app that will. Perhaps the Twitter API is limited...?

    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.

    It's just individual tweets you don't get. This isn't a limitation of the OS, it's a limitation of the application for it not to be able to send you notifications of every single tweet.

    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
