    Hi,

    I'm new to Twitter and have recently got a new phone. At the moment, I get a notification on my phone whenever one of my friends sends a tweet. One of these friends sends 30+ messages per day and I really don't need to get notifications for them.

    I've gone to her page on twitter.com and have turned off the "send to mobile phone" option, but I'm still getting a notification on my phone whenever she tweets something. This option worked on my old phone (which used text messages rather than the notification system). Does anyone know how to resolve this? The phone is a Nexus One with the built-in Twitter app.

    Thanks :)

    Did you ever figure this out? I am trying to turn off one of my users as well. Thanks

    I'm afraid not. The latest version of the Twitter app still has this issue :(

    On my iPhone I just went to Settings and found the Twitter.app settings and turned it of from there.

    Hmm, the Android version doesn't seem to have an option. Just in case I'm looking in the wrong place, what's it called in the iPhone version?

    Hit the "Unfollow" button. Gotta keep up the signal:noise ratio.
