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
Activate or Deactivate email notifications
Go to Twitter settings page to check or uncheck options. Of course, one must check emails often to know about it 🙂
Nice . . !
