Twitter to Launch Real Time Pop Up Notifications

On Thursday (10TH April) Twitter announced they are are set to launch pop up notifications for users of twitter.com. The notifications will be in real time and will happen when users are engaging with another user's tweets.

To see the feature people will need to be logged in on twitter.com, people will receive notifications if someone has replied, favourited or retweeted one of their Tweets. The notifications will also be for direct messages and new followers. They’re fully interactive, so that people can reply, favourite, retweet, and follow right from the notification.

The new notification system will bring Twitter closer in line with social networks such as Facebook and Instagram, both of which have a notifications system. This notification system will go hand-in-hand with Twitter’s new Web layout, a shift that’s also designed to increase the number of people that stick around on the web version of Twitter.

Be sure to check the setting of your Twitter account to ensure you will receive the notifications. 

                                              

Twitter will be rolling this feature out over the coming weeks. Let us know in the comments what you think about the new feature.
