Twitter Push Notifications Not Working On iPhone, iPad, Android? Here’s The Fix


Here's how you can fix Twitter for iPhone, iPad and Android push notifications not working issue in a few easy steps.


The official Twitter app for iOS and Android is just 'OK' to say the least. It gets the job done, and embraces new features before any third-party Twitter app out there, since it's maintained by Twitter itself. But at times, the app can throw a miserable fit and tends to behave in such a way which is unfavorable to many. And keeping that very same thing in mind, you'll one day run into a problem where the official Twitter for iOS and Android app will stop sending push notifications your way albeit being turned on from the app itself. Fear not, we're here to help you fix that issue once and for all, and it doesn't even take more than a couple of minutes.

5. On your iOS or Android device, Twitter will stop working since you've revoked access to the service itself. You'll need to sign back into the apps to get things working again.

6. In Twitter settings in the official app itself, make sure notifications are enabled.


That's it you're done.

Your Twitter notifications will now come through without any sort of problem whatsoever, and in order to make sure that is the case, we recommend asking one of your followers to send you a direct message or give you an @mention.

If you're on iOS and are still not receiving notifications then it's highly likely that you have disabled Twitter notifications on a system level. Simply navigate to Settings > Notifications and check whether or not Twitter has been disabled from sending you notifications. If it is, then grant is access.

It's somewhat strange why Twitter pulls off this problem on a mobile level, but now that we've provided you with a fix, your Twitter notifications will never ever go silent ever again.
