Twitter Alerts Gains New Features, Rolls Out To Additional Countries

Twitter’s Alert feature is becoming much more robust. Launched back in September, the goal of Twitter Alerts is to provide pertinent information in times of crisis. Users can subscribe to alerts from a specific handle, and alerts will be sent directly to their phone. Today both iOS and Android apps now give users the option to subscribe to the alerts directly on the app as 30 additional entities across the globe are rolling out.


To subscribe to alerts from a profile users simply need to navigate to the account profile and click on the bell icon. You’ll now begin receiving alerts from that entity. An additional new feature also allows in-app notifications for iOS users (seen above). When an alert is issued, an orange notification will show directly in the stream.


Organizations in Brazil, Australia joined Twitter Alerts this week. Here are all of the accounts on Twitter that are currently participating in the program.
