Twitter Now Sending Alert Emails for Retweets & Favorites
Posted By Kayla On May 24, 2011 @ 4:30 pm In News Update | No Comments
Twitter has announced  that they are expanding their email alert system to include notifications when a follower of the account retweets or favorites one of your tweets.
Under their previous settings, users only received emails when they gained a new follower or were sent a direct message. In a possible attempt to keep new users coming back, Twitter has added further notification levels to retweets and favorites that will bring user attention back to the platform to see what has been retweeted or which tweet the follower added as a favorite.
Very quickly I can come up with a positive and negative to this new email policy:
