Twitter has announced that it is bringing notification alerts to its website. Users that access Twitter directly from the Twitter.com website will soon start seeing pop-up notifications. The notifications will appear if a user retweets, mentions, or messages them.
The notification will appear in the lower-right hand corner of the user’s timeline. The popup notifications are interactive so that you can follow someone back or reply to a message directly from the notification. Twitter users can disable the notifications from the Settings menu if they ado not want to see the messages.
