Tailor Twitter Notifications On iOS
Written by Hassan Abbas

Do you want to customize or tailor Twitter notifications on iOS and the web? Social media alerts can be both helpful and irritating at the same time. Fortunately, you want to be alerted of things that interest you or you can also take action on. But sometimes, this doesn’t add every single notification offered by the service.

Here in this guide, we’ll help you to customize your Twitter notifications for those things you want to view.

Accessing Twitter notification settings

The choices you have for your Twitter alerts are recently identical across iPhone, iPad, and Mac. The main difference between the apps for these devices and the Twitter website is that you can also customize your push notifications on the phone or Mac. Fortunately, the website can’t offer this.

If you want to access your Twitter notification or alerts settings on the iPhone, simply click your profile photo and select Settings and privacy.

On Mac, iPad, and the web, you’ll choose the More button from the left and select Settings and privacy. When you’re in the Settings area, choose Notifications.

Customizing Twitter notifications

You can begin customizing your Twitter alerts using the Filters located at the top of the section. Then, scroll on down to the Preferences for SMS, push, and email notifications.

Twitter notification filters

Quality filter: By enabling this, simply filter out low-quality content.

Advanced filters: This setting enables you to mute notifications from people you don’t follow, who can’t follow you, who have a new account, and much more.

Twitter notification preferences

Push notifications: On Mac or iOS, just decide which push notifications you like to receive that are related to you and your tweets, also those that come from Twitter.

Related to you and your Tweets: Some of the choices here such as Direct messages and Photo tags are quite simple on or off. But others like Tweets enables you to select how to handle notifications for particular people you follow.

From Twitter: For news, events, broadcasts, and other items from Twitter, you can turn on or off those you like to receive.

SMS notifications: Like push notifications, you can tailor what you want to receive related to you or from Twitter. So you probably want message alerts for direct messages or replies to them, but not for Twitter news.

Email notifications: Email notifications are more detailed than the other types above. And what’s good is that you can turn on or off these notifications altogether if you like.

If you turn on email notifications, just plan which to receive related to you, from your WiFi, and from Twitter. It adds weekly reports for your account, top Tweets from your network, direct messages, and Twitter tricks.

If you want to ensure you don’t add your inbox using Twitter emails. Just take a time to mark those you really like if you decide to receive email alerts.


Here’s all about “Tailor Twitter Notifications On iOS”. Twitter has lots of notification settings for sure. But as they are fully tailored, just ensure that you’re the only notification with what you like to view on all of your devices or the web.
