Are Twitter notifications not working?

You are not alone in your search to find an answer.

Generally, you get one answer, and that is it, yet they do not work.

Do not worry!

We have compiled a few of the solutions that can help you get your regular push twitter notifications.

Why Are Your Twitter Notifications Not Working

Before we get into the solution, let us first discuss what the problem is!

Twitter notification is that small chime alert you get when someone retweets, likes, or replies on your formerly known Twitter (now X) platform.

The few known reasons why you are not getting your notifications are as follows:

  • You have a poor internet connection.
  • Your push notifications aren’t switched on.
  • Background data restriction preventing notification alert.

These are to name a few, but there could be other serious reasons like:

  • Twitter accounts are getting shadowbanned.
  • A hacked Twitter account.

We will be discussing it all further.

How To Make Twitter Notifications Work

Without any further ado, let’s get into how to make your Twitter notifications work.

1. Check Your Twitter Push Notifications

Check Your Twitter Push Notifications

Check your push notifications in your Twitter settings. Here is how to check:

  • Once you are in your X account, go to Profile.
  • Select ‘Settings & Privacy’ from the ‘Profile’ menu.
  • Then move to the ‘Notifications’.
  • Over here, you can select your ‘Notification’ setting. There is an option called ‘Push Notification.’ Switch it on.

2. Open Your Settings

Open Your Settings

Your forgotten mobile settings could also be a reason behind not receiving Twitter notifications. Here is how you can check:

  • Go to > Settings
  • Search for ‘Notifications’. Click when you find the option.
  • You will get a list of your applications (All installed ones).
  • Find X and open.
  • Among all the application settings, you will find ‘Notification.’
  • Click and open > enable all X notifications.

Over here, you can also specify other pop-up notification settings. Plus, add a separate notification tone for your Twitter notifications.

3. Clear Or Delete Your Cache

Clear Or Delete Your Cache

Sometimes, it is not your notification settings. Your X application could be lagging. However, do not worry. There is a way to fix it as well.

  • Go to your phone settings.
  • Click on the option Apps > select application.’
  • Find X from the list of installed applications.
  • Go to the ‘Storage’ option.
  • You will find ‘clear cache’ on the right.

Now, your X is no longer lagging, as all the lagging history has been cleared.

4. Log-Out & Then Log-In Again

Log-Out & Then Log-In Again

If your X is still lagging after clearing the cache, and you are unable to receive Twitter notifications, there is another solution.

  • Simply click on Profile
  • Scroll down to the bottom> Log out.
  • Once you are at the Login page, enter your credentials again.

5. Switch On Your Background Data

Switch On Your Background Data

Sometimes, your phone uses background data to push notifications when the application is not open.

Here is how you can switch on your push notifications:

  • Go to>Settings> Connections> Data Usage. If you are unable to find any, search for it.
  • Find the Mobile section and click on Data Usage.
  • Find the application ‘X’ and switch on ‘Background data’ for that application.

Some are hesitant to switch on background data as it can drain the battery. The impact is less when you do it for just one application. Still, you shouldn’t switch it on if you are outside and running low on battery.

At times, when you switch on your ‘Battery Saving’ or ‘Data saving’ mode for Android, it automatically switches background data. So, do check it once.

6. Your Phone Might Be Do Not Disturb

Your Phone Might Be Do Not Disturb

This is a setting we often forget to switch off. This can impact not only your Twitter Notifications but also others.

Here is how you can check whether your phone is on ‘Do Not Disturb.’

  • Open your settings> Go to Focus.
  • Scroll down to find the ‘Do Not Disturb’ Option.
  • Switch it off, and you should start getting your push notifications immediately.

7. Switch Off Your Internet Connection

Switch Off Your Internet Connection

At times, it is not your phone or your application. Poor internet connection is a major reason for you not receiving your notification.

  • It is better to switch off your internet connection.
  • Wait for 30 seconds, let it refresh, and switch it on again. Sometimes, if your router is on for too long, the connection does glitch.
  • Check if too many people have connected to the wifi; this can also lead to bandwidth overloading.

It is not just with X in particular. Sometimes, we can face this issue with any other form of social media when the connection is poor.

8. Turn Off Your Quality Filter

Turn Off Your Quality Filter

In the newest version of X, you can also filter out low-quality content. Although this improves your X experience, it can automatically switch off your Twitter notifications. The application might not deem certain content as ‘quality’ and prevent push notifications.

Open your Twitter account> Go to the notification.

There you will find the ‘Quality filter’ option. Simply switch it off.

9. Your Account Probably Got Shadowbanned

Your Account Probably Got Shadowbanned

Now, coming to a more serious issue. If you have been in the influencing game and not receiving X notifications, you are familiar with shadowbanned.

Here are some of the signs that your account is shadowbanned:

  • You do not have the same engagement as before, even though there isn’t much change in your posts.
  • Search results refuse to show you, no matter what optimization you practice.
  • Certain features are accessible to you.

Why your account reached that point:

  • You were paying for likes and comments too much.
  • Not all your Twitter followers are genuine.
  • Your old Tweets had derogatory comments or slurs. Find ways to delete old tweets in bulk.
  • You were using keywords banned by X.

Time To Contact Twitter Support

Time To Contact Twitter Support

Not getting your Twitter notifications is one thing, but are you also seeing other suspicious activities? For example

  • Following people you don’t remember following.
  • Logged out of your profile even if you remember logging in.
  • Likes and comments on pages you do not remember doing.
  • Tweets you do not remember posting.
  • Changing of X settings.

These are common signs of accounts being hacked. This is the time you should change your password immediately and contact the X support system.
