Twitter New Feature: Email Alert for @ Mentions, Retweet and Favorites

It took me by surprise today morning with couple of emails from Twitter. Yes. What was it?

It required an additional click to find @mentions for Twitter account and was difficult to track it on timeline if I am following lots of people with plenty of tweets.

From today, Twitter seemed to activate email alerts for @mentions, Retweets, Favorites making it more useful & quicker social networking website. The problem with @mentions was the ability to respond back quickly for not being able to get visual notification. We had to be on Twitter all the time to track timely @mentions.

Twitter has @mentions feature for smartphone app via Push Notifications.

But now, we don’t need to worry about it. We should get an email alert for @mention and we can reply back quickly if needed.

Twitter has introduced email notifications for

  • Receive a reply or mentioned
  • Tweets marked as favorites
  • Tweets are retweeted
