Twitter announced that it’s adding new real-time notifications to, so that you can more easily interact with those engaging with your tweets.

Logged in users will get notifications when someone has replied, favorited, or retweeted one of their tweets. You can also choose to get them for direct messages and new followers.

“They’re fully interactive, so that you can reply, favorite, retweet, and follow right from the notification,” the company explains in a blog post.

“To make sure you’re getting the notifications you want, go to your Settings on,” it says. “That’s where you can choose what types of notifications you want to get on and via email and mobile. If you use a Twitter app, check out your settings there too, so you can refine the types of push notifications you receive.”

The feature will roll out over the coming weeks.

Also in the process of rolling out is a new redesign of profile pages, which bring some additional new features to the Twitter experience, including pinned tweets, best tweets, and filtered tweets. More on that here.
