Don’t want to see notifications from everyone? Now with notification settings you have ability to limit notifications to only people they follow on mobile and on twitter.com.

  • Quality Filter

Twitter added another new option to your notification settings: a quality filter setting.

When turned on, the filter can improve the quality of Tweets you see by using a variety of signals, such as account origin and behavior. Turning it on filters lower-quality content, like duplicate Tweets or content that appears to be automated, from your notifications and other parts of your Twitter experience. It does not filter content from people you follow or accounts you’ve recently interacted with – and depending on your preferences, you can turn it on or off in your notifications settings.
