How to turn off Twitter 3.2 Push Notifications – iPhone

As you may of heard Twitter Inc, has released an update to its iOS App for iPhone, iPad, and iTouch which includes push notifications. Read more from @ammojoe on CNet here  



I’d never tried push notifications before on my iPhone, it just didn’t appeal to me. When I’m on twitter I’m “on twitter”, which to be fair, is pretty often, so I don’t miss much. However lately I have wondered if someone has replied, or wanted me for something, etc., so I decided that push notifications would help this constantly having to “check twitter”. (Not that I am addicted or anything!) : )


If you are like me, and have suddenly realised that this is an immensely annoying gimmick, then you are going to want to stop it like I have, after one day. 


When you first open the Twitter application 3.2 it just asks if you want to add push notifications, but if you added push and now want to disable it you simply have to go into settings.


This is how….


1 – Click the 3 Dots on the far right.





2 – Scroll down to the bottom and click Accounts and Settings





3 – Next click Settings at the bottom





4 – Click Notifications. 









5 – Slide Messages, Mentions and Replies Off. 







There you have it, peace again :)  


I think this may have its use when I am urgently waiting for a reply to a message in which case, I will just turn it back on again, it can be used as and when. 


Or you should be able to go to iPhone settings – Notifications – and disable sounds and alerts there, but this is cleaner :)  

Hope you found this useful.

Thanks.
