Activity and notifications

What is the Notifications tab?

  • This tab offers a simple way to see how others on Twitter are interacting with you. 
  • Just click on Notifications on the Notifications page, and you’ll be able to see which of your Tweets have been favorited, plus the latest retweets (of your Tweets), Tweets directed to you (@replies and mentions), and your new followers.
  • If you'd only like to see your @replies and mentions, click on the Mentions tab on the Notifications page.

What is the Activity tab?

  • The Activity tab is found on the Discover page. 
  • It provides a rich new source of discovery by highlighting the latest favorites, retweets, and follows from the people you follow on Twitter — all in one place.

Where can I see which of my Tweets have been retweeted?

  • If someone else retweets one of your Tweets, you will see a notification of that retweet in your Notifications

My Tweets are protected - will people be able to see the actions I take?

  • If your Tweets are protected, only your approved followers will see your retweets and favorites in their Activity tab. 
  • Only approved followers will be able to see your follow activity. Similarly, only your approved followers will be able to see if others follow you or if they retweet or favorite one of your Tweets.

How can I only see actions taken on my Tweets from users I follow?

  • You can filter your Notifications or Mentions tab from the Notifications page on by clicking on People you follow. You will only see actions taken by users you follow.
  • To see all actions taken, even from users you don’t follow, click on All.

Why don't I see all actions taken on my Tweets?

  • You may not see all follow actions from users who follow a large number of accounts. 
  • In addition, you will not see the follow activity of accounts you follow that have protected Tweets. 
  • Retweets will appear in your Activity timeline when they’ve been retweeted by two or more accounts that you follow.
