What can I do if I'm not getting any notifications?

It may take up to 30 seconds from when a new comment, message, or thread is updated until you receive your notification.

I've enabled notifications, but I'm still not getting any. What else can I try?

Here are a few things you can try to get your notifications working:

  • Make sure you’re not snoozing. Notifications won’t show up when Snooze is turned on.
  • Check if Time Off is turned off. If you’ve enabled Time Off, Twist won’t send you any notifications.
  • If you’re not getting a notification for a group message, make sure you haven’t muted it.
  • Make sure your device is not in low power mode or running a battery saver app.
  • Disable programs like Clean Master and other blocker apps which prevent notifications from popping up.
