Twitter Adds Push Notifications and Multiple Account Support To Android App

Posted Jul 14, 2011

Twitter has added push notifications and multiple account support to their Android application. These are two of the company’s most requested features.

Push notifications means that you will instantly receive a Twitter update in the form of a pop-up no matter what you are doing on your device at the time. In the account settings, select “automatic refresh” and choose to receive Direct Messages, @Mentions, and Tweets updates.

You will also be able to use multiple accounts on Twitter for Android without logging out. This makes it easier for people that have separate business and personal accounts.
