Twitter is testing out a new push notifications feature called for the Twitter iPhone application. Twitter is currently internally testing out the push notifications feature.
People that have iOS 4.1 installed (Gold Master for developers) have the option to enable push notifications for Twitter. The push notifications don’t work yet, but the feature is almost ready to go.
Below is a message that Twitter sent out about the feature:
“We?ve been testing push notifications internally. When we launched Twitter for iPad, there was a configuration error that caused us to offer push messages to a small set of users. We?ve stopped sending push messages, but users may see an option to turn on push until we release an updated version of the app. So, push isn?t ready yet but we look forward to rolling this out soon.”
