Twitter notifications have increased for some users. The social network has quietly tweaked its settings meaning users are now getting more alerts for different types of content.
The social network said the change is aimed at ensuring users don’t miss content that they may find interesting.
Information on accounts that users follow tweeting about trending topics, sharing links or following other Twitter users, previously shared with users exclusively through push notifications, is now appearing under the same tab as information on users’ own activity and tweets, such as retweets, favourites and new followers.
The reaction to the change from Twitter users has been lukewarm…

He @twitter. I really don't need you to add notifications of who OTHER people are following.

There is some good news…
If you’re not a big fan of the increased notifications you can tap on the down arrow next to the notification and choose “see less often.”
