Twitter Makes In-Browser Notifications Official

Twitter today officially announced that it would start to offer in-browser notifications — as we wrote yesterday, noticing a test of the feature.

“When you’re logged in on, you will receive notifications if someone has replied, favorited or retweeted one of your Tweets. You can also receive notifications for direct messages and new followers,” Michael Ducker of Twitter writes. “They’re fully interactive, so that you can reply, favorite, retweet, and follow right from the notification. We’ll be rolling this feature out over the coming weeks.”

A reader in Holland alerted us to the feature being tested yesterday, and we wrote a full look at what the implications of the feature were.

Twitter says it will be rolling it out in the coming weeks.
