Setting to change to get notified of all interactions on Twitter

How you can make sure that you are being notified of all your Twitter interactions

Twitter recently made a change which essentially means that you may not necessarily get notified on the website when someone interacts with you.

This is maybe not a problem for some of you cool kids with hundreds of thousands of followers but for little old me, I need to make every interaction count!

To update your settings to allow you to get notified of every interaction you can go to this settings page, or do go manually you will want to;

  1. Go to Your Settings Page
  2. Click on Web Notifications

The page will look something like this;

Twitter Settings Page Twitter Settings Page

I think the default is now "Tailored for you" which I am guessing means Twitter are applying some algorithm to decide if you want to see the notification or not.

By changing this to "By Anyone" Twitter should no longer apply this filter.
