New Twitter Update Might Let You Pause Push Notifications

Using social media is a great way to stay in touch with people and to make sure that you are able to stay up to date on a lot of different things, but the fact of the matter is that sometimes there can be an overload with regards to the notifications that you are receiving, and what this means is that you might just be getting a few too many push notifications from applications such as Twitter.

However, a new feature that Twitter was spotted testing out might just help you prevent these push notifications from getting too bothersome. According to Jane Manchun Wong, this potential new feature will basically give you the option to snooze your push notifications for one, three or twelve hours. However much time you select is going to be the amount of time during which you are no longer going to receive notifications, and once the time has elapsed you will start receiving push notifications once again.

This will be useful if you often get Twitter notifications in the middle of the night which could potentially end up disturbing your sleep quite a bit. However, a couple facets of this potential new feature are a little confusing.


For example, the fact that you are restricted to one, three and twelve hour snoozes is quite odd. The gap between three and twelve hours is quite large, but perhaps the final version of this feature is going to end up offering you a few more options which would help you better customize the amount of time during which your push notifications are going to be paused.

Twitter has a feature that allows you to set sleeping hours so that you don’t get disturbed with notifications during this set period of time, so this new feature might just be a little redundant. That being said, it’s fair to say that there are quite a few positive applications for the feature, so Twitter might be looking to roll it out soon.

Twitter is testing Snooze feature, allowing users to pause notifications for 1 hour, 3 hours or 12 hours!
