Andypiper,

First of all thanks to reply me. I want to ask is there any purchased twitter rest api to fetch notifications?
Because Tweetbot app is showing notifications. Have you any idea about this?

Thanks!

I believe the Tweetbot developers built that system for themselves. There’s no additional Twitter-provided API for this.

If you’re wanting to provide push notifications to a user’s device based on mentions, DMs, etc then Tweetbot, etc would be using SiteStream on their own server infrastructure.

If you mean tracking all Tweets a user posts you’ll need to use other forms of stream filter or user stream
