Both Twitter and Facebook, without any real doubt, are the two most popular social networking services currently out there. And both of them, it seems, are currently bent on revamping the whole experience generated via both the sites. Now the recent one to jump into that bandwagon is Twitter with new changes applied to the website.
Recently after announcing the picture-filled web profiles for all users, according to reports, the company is now looking to add quicker interaction-based options with real-time pop-up notifications for its web experience.
As revealed first via the Official Twitter Blog, Twitter is currently set to roll out real-time notifications for its Web version in the next few weeks. These pop-up notifications will be placed on the bottom right corner of the page and will offers users alerts for direct messages, @mentions, and even when the tweets are further retweeted.
"When you're logged in on twitter.com, you will receive notifications if someone has replied, favorited or retweeted one of your Tweets," the official post for the same states.
"You can also receive notifications for direct messages and new followers. They're fully interactive, so that you can reply, favorite, retweet, and follow right from the notification."
Apart from that, Twitter will also show users new followers via this new notification feature, and will appear as a floating rectangle on the bottom right corner.
To make sure you get hold of the new update and receive notifications via the same, users will need to head over to their Settings on the site. For those of you using the app version of it, check the settings there as well.
