Twitter Rolling Out New Profile Based Follower Email Notifications

Twitter seems to be on a roll with newly added changes and features to its micro-blogging service. In the past two weeks, we’ve seen the service agree to the Do Not Track option on browsers and Twitter has also started to send users highlights via email. Now apparently, Twitter is gradually rolling out something that seems to be a new format for emails that are sent to alert you about new followers.

Reportedly, the email-based notification contains a few of the elements that you are used to such as the name, profile picture, bio and follower count. The feature which allows users to see if there are other Twitter users “related” in some way to your new follower should also still be in place. However, elements like usernames have been removed from the subject of the email and it now reads, “You have a new follower on Twitter”.

As opposed to that tweak, the most significant part of the update is said to be the complete redesign of the UI and it allegedly features a ‘Follow’ button and instead of trying to follow back users from your Inbox, it just launches the Twitter profile belonging to the person in question. In addition to that, the email notification will also include the “follower’s” website if they included one in their profile.

From a report online, the newly designed layout is said to be a lot sleeker and makes the older notification emails pale in comparison, but those are just opinions. If you’ve already seen the new layout for the email notifications, do let us know what you think about it with a comment below.
