    Ok, hopefully someone has encoutnered this issue and can help me out :(

    I am logged into twitter through the App and in settings.

    Push notifications are working through the app and displaying as an alert but not through ios5 notification centre as a banner. I am not just missing the banner as there is no notifications when i drag open the centre even after recieving 2-3 replys.

    Setting in Centre:
    Twitter on
    Show 5 recent items
    Banner
    Badge app icon on
    Sounds on
    View in lock screen on

    Thanks in advance for any assistance

    You have Twitter listed in your Notifications Center settings???? I don't....and I have the app installed.....

    I just figured maybe Twitter didn't support the notification center yet.....weird.

    I have the same problem...

    I'm not getting any notifications from twitter nor Mail app. I have set up all the settings correctly... This drives me crazy :(

    Only tweets that are sent directly to you are pushed to Notification Center. I guess it would be to much for the os if it had to push potentially 1000's of tweets to your phone a day... I too was disappointed by this. I was hoping to turn it into my news feed.

    But there are options "Messages" (i guess all of them) and "Mentions & Replies" (this what you are talking about)... Or i'm wrong? :confused:

    Even those are not being tweeted to me. I have a 2nd account in which I am testing with and sending a tweet directly to myself and they aint coming through.

    Is there any other way to make a news feed in the notification center?

    these push notifications are working fine, but these are pop ups as alerts via the App itself.

    What is not working is notifications through ios5 Notification centre

    I was hoping to see News Feed also, i'm reluctant anyhow to have to use the Twitter App as i think it's rubbish, i use Tweetbot and it's far better.

    But even Twitter is not displaying Messages, Mentions , etc

    Bit disappointed with notifications tbh.

    I use an app called "Boxcar" for Twitter notifications since the app I use (Twittelator Pro doesn't support push). It's great and it is working just fine with the IOS 5 notification center. You can use Boxcar to see your @ replies, if your tweets get RTs, if someone follows you etc. It works with a lot of different Twitter apps, too.
