    A few questions...

    first, i am trying to add twitter to notification center so i can get my @ replies there, but im not seeing twitter listed underneath the notification center in settings. i have twitter for iphone...how do i add it with the other apps w/ notification center?

    also, for iMessage, how do you add people? you can use their apple id e-mail right? but how do you add them to your phone or whatever? is that possible, or do you just type in their apple ID when you go to send a message?

    thanks in advance!

    It should be in the next section down "Not in notification center." Click on it there and then switch "Notification Center" to On. Now it should be in the notification center section.

    For iMessage, you just add their phone number like normal. If your phone detects they have iOS 5, then when you try to text them in messages, the bubble turns blue and you have additional iMessage options.

    so you cant add someone to iMessage without their number? you cant just use their apple id?

    also..still lost at what you mean, when i go to settings > notifications > all the apps using notification center are listed.

    but twitter isnt..how do i add it to there? cant figure it out

    You can add numbers or emails but you have to know which account each user is using. I'd expected an imessage field in the address book. Anyway once you sent an iMessage to someone successfully the device remembers that and shows a bubble near the number or address.

    ----------

    You have to install the twitter app (from settings or AppStore).

    Oh, sorry, I see what you mean now. Yes, you can do that too. See here.

    If you have Twitter installed and it's the latest version (did you update it?), it should show up in Settings -> Notifications -> either under "in notification center" or below that in "not in notification center," depending on which one you've set.

    I don't think so. iPod Touch and iPad can now useIMessage and their owners do not necessarily have phone numbers.

    Did you reinstall the twitter app, when you launched it did you say yes allow push notifications? If you did it should list under the notification settings.

    I believe you can message someone just based off their e-mail, as long as that e-mail has been associated with iMessage.

    yea...its not showing up under "in notification center" or even below that in "not in notification center" even after deleting and re-installing

    wtf, is there a way to get it to allow notifications manually in case i accidentally said no? i figured it would have asked me after re-downloading but it didnt..

    Can we specify specific twitter accts to notify us in the not center? I'd like my real life friends tweets pushed there but not celebs and news accounts.

    Have you enabled notifications within the Twitter app? Go to the Accounts list in the Twitter app, tap Settings, and you should see options for notifications.
