Almost every app that you have installed on your iPhone will wish to send you notifications. Some apps send more notifications than others, but the most frequent senders tend to be social media apps. The Twitter iPhone app, in my own experience, tends to display more notifications than most other apps.
If you are frustrated with the amount of notifications that the Twitter app is displaying, or if you simply find these notifications to be unnecessary, then you can choose to turn off all of the notifications completely. You can follow our tutorial below and learn how to set this up on your iPhone.
Disabling Twitter Notifications in iOS 8
These steps were performed on an iPhone 6 Plus, in iOS 8.4. You can follow these same instructions for other iPhone models running iOS 8 or higher. You can also turn off Twitter notifications in earlier versions of iOS, although the exact steps for doing so may vary slightly.
These steps were performed with the official Twitter iPhone app. You can, however, use these same steps to disable notifications for other apps on your device.
- Step 1: Open the Settings menu.
- Step 2: Tap the Notifications button.
- Step 3: Scroll down and select the Twitter option. Note that the exact location of the Twitter option on this list can vary, but it will be displayed somewhere if the Twitter app is installed on your device.
- Step 4: Tap the button to the right of Allow Notifications to turn it off. You will know that the notifications are disabled when the rest of the options on this screen are hidden, and there is no green shading around the button. For example, notifications for the Twitter app are turned off in the image below.
