Twitter Notification Help


New member
Oct 4, 2011
I went into Settings > Sounds > Tweet and changed the tone to "Tweet" but it when I get a notification for a mention, DM, etc. it plays the default "Tri-tone." Even when I go back into the Sounds profile I see "Tweet" checked. Does anybody know why the change isn't taking effect? All the other apps that I have configured sounds for (calls, sms, voicemail...) will play the sound profile I select for them.

I am running iOS 5.1.1 on a Jailbroken VZW iPhone 4s (the problem existed before I jailbroke it - I haven't done much other than add a tweak or two using Activator and SBSettings).

Please and thank you.

that "Tweet" sound you are selecting for Twitter is for sent only, not incoming. Tri-tone is mostly used with most apps (another reason why i like Tweetbot more)

since you are jailbroken search in Cydia for: PushTone

this tweak will allow you to assign any available tones on your device for desired apps
