    How can I get these to work? With either taptic or sound alerts. Is this possible? The picture pops up but that's it. I have notifications enabled for a couple of accounts I don't want to miss.

    Bump, I have the same issue with Twitter. I can get notifications but visual only, not haptic.

    In order to receive haptic notifications the app must be configured to make audible alerts on the iPhone. On the iPhone go to Settings>Notifications> Twitter and ensure both Sounds and Banners are enabled. If only banners is enabled, then you'll only see a red dot when you have a Twitter notification, you will not hear or feel it.

    And I've noticed that if the App doesn't typically make a noise on your phone, even when sounds are enabled for the App, then it won't vibrate on your Watch.

    Why wouldn't the app make sound on your phone if it was enabled?

    Some apps just don't. I'm not saying Twitter is one of them. Just saying if an App doesn't make noise, it won't vibrate the watch.
