    Is there a way I can set up Twitter notifications so that I get a notification when someone sends me a tweet? I have it set up so that I get it as a text message, but I'd prefer to just have it show up in the notifications bar and then if i want to read it, have it take me to the Twitter app. Is this possible? Thanks.

    Settings->Notifications->Twitter->Notification Center - On, Alert Style - Banners, View in Lock Screen - On.

    I'm having the same problem. Looks like other people are too. I've got the notifications set correctly, as well as the twitter app, but notifications don't seem to be working...

    Any advice guys?

    Yeah, I would change it in twitter settings, but it kept defaulting back to being "Off" for some reason. After about 5-6 attempts, I gave up and went to using Tweetbot. Works like a charm :)

    Can I make Tweetbot showing up notifications in the notifications center? Is this possible?

    EDIT: It's OK, I found out how.

    BoxCar...this is what you need to route your notifications through. I use it in conjunction with Notification Center and it works perfectly.

    Twitter + Notifications does work. However with the most recent Twitter app update, it turned on some features which may have messed up the associations.

    Try this: Go into the Twitter settings in iOS, delete your accounts and put them back again. (Or you can do it in the Twitter app)

    Notifications on Tweets do not work for me either.
    This whole notification thing appears to be buggy like hell to me.
    Loads of issues.

    I turned them on by going into the App itself, going to the '...' at the end of the row, tap settings, then notifications, then you can choose what you get notifications for.

    It's a bit unintuitive for something that's supposed to be integrated..

    Hi,

    Make sure Notifications are turned on in Tweetbot setting, ut should be fine then, although News Feed will not be show in IOS notifications if that's what your looking for. Only direct stuff, Tweets to yourself, messages, etc

    Hmm. How fast do you normally receive your tweets after they've been sent to you? I have 2 accounts and I have one in iOS5 and in my twitter app and I'm sending it tweets from my other account from my PC and it's taking quite a while to go.

    Also, in notification center I have it organised by app not time and I put twitter at the top, back out of the settings and then when I look at the settings again the twitter app is at the bottom of the list! :s. Anyone else having this problem?

    Did you click 'done' or 'save' before you came out of the settings?

    Yes! :p.

    Someone told me a hard reset fixes it, and it did. Until I added twitter into the list again, and it shuffled itself. Another hard reset fixed it with twitter now where I want it to be though. Finally.
