Twitter Announces Pop-Up Notifications

Twitter announced on its blog this week that they will soon roll out pop-up notifications to their web interface. These notifications will be in real-time and will alert you when someone engages with one of your tweets.

When you’re logged in on, you will receive notifications if someone has replied, favorited or retweeted one of your Tweets. You can also receive notifications for direct messages and new followers. They’re fully interactive, so that you can reply, favorite, retweet, and follow right from the notification. We’ll be rolling this feature out over the coming weeks.

If you don’t want to receive these notifications, don’t worry. You can turn them off.
