New Twitter update 'clutters' notifications tab

Twitter has tweaked its notifications tab which now shows information on accounts that you follow, like what those accounts are tweeting and who are they following.

The new update has, however, made the Twitter notification more crowded, TechCrunch reported on Thursday.

According to the micro-blogging site, the change is aimed at ensuring that users don't miss content that they may find interesting.

Users who find these new notifications cluttering can opt out by tapping "see less often" option.

Twitter began testing the changes to notifications with 'certain types of users' last year.

Combining different notifications in a single tap is not something new that Twitter has done.

Facebook also notifies you about a range of updates, including who liked or commented on your posts you are tagged in, friends' birthdays, posts from particular friends and Pages and events.

The new Twitter update has been rolled out for both iOS and Android apps and the web.
