Push Notifications

Dear users,

There have been some inquires about push notifications and what would be involved to add them to Tweet.  First let me state that I’m a one man operation.  In order to make the magic happen the developer (that’s me) need to write and set up their own server to communicate to Apple’s Push Notification Service.  To compound the problem further it’s also necessary for that server to maintain a constant connection to Twitter to determine when someone has a new mentions or direct message.  A big time consuming job that would be at the cost other features and improvements to Tweet.  As the number of users/accounts requiring push notifications increases so does cost.  They are simpler solutions involving third parties that I am looking into and will keep you guys posted!

Thanks for using Tweet!
