Twitter can seem overwhelming if you follow a lot of friends, coworkers, celebrities and companies. All their postings can be hard to keep up with, and you don't want to miss any.
Fortunately, there's a simple way to get the tweets you want right away. Just follow these steps from your Twitter app:
- Go to the account you want to receive notifications from
- Tap the gear icon on the right side of the screen (it's a little gray circle with eight prongs)
- Tap "Turn on notifications"
Now, every time that person sends a tweet, you'll know it. This is especially helpful if you're traveling. Just set up notifications from local businesses, so you know what fun activities are going on when you're there, and which restaurants and attractions are offering special deals.
Note: If you only want to receive original tweets, tap on "Turn off Retweets."
