Push Notifications Coming to Twitter for iPhone This Week
According to Techcrunch, Twitter is internally testing Apple’s push notifications system on it’s official client for iPhone and iPod touch, may be for iPad too. The app is known by “Tweetie” for iPhone. As it reports, many users started to notice the generic iOS notification asking them to turn on push notifications for Twitter’s official iPhone client.
The better news is that the update is scheduled to launch sometime for public this week. Here’s Techcrunch report:
Twitter is currently internally testing the feature, we’ve confirmed. Interestingly enough, we learned of its existence when the latest version of the app went out yesterday (the universal binary that included Twitter for iPad). It appears that users who have iOS 4.1 installed (which just hit Gold Master for developers, but won’t be official out until next week) get the option to enable Push Notifications for Twitter. They don’t appear to be working yet, but the feature is definitely there.
They have sent to Twitter for a comment, Twitter PR had this to say:
We’ve been testing push notifications internally. When we launched Twitter for iPad, there was a configuration error that caused us to offer push messages to a small set of users. We’ve stopped sending push messages, but users may see an option to turn on push until we release an updated version of the app. So, push isn’t ready yet but we look forward to rolling this out soon.Google Ads:
It’s not clear if this feature coming to Twitter for iPad or not, but I see no reason why it shouldn’t be added to the iPad version. Sta tuned and we will keep you informed. [via Techcrunch]
