As above, I want a different sound for incoming Twitter alerts so they are not the same as my normal texts. It's so frustrating to keep looking at the phone when I am waiting for a particular private text, but I dont want to get rid of my Twitter alerts. Surely like email sound can be different this should be too. How do I do it please? I have an HTC Sensation.

In the Twitter app...

  1. Tap the Overflow menu (three vertical dots) and choose "Settings"
  2. Tap the account (your username, not general) you want to change
  3. Under "Notification Indicators" tap "Ringtone"
  4. Choose the Ringtone you want to use for Twitter notifications for this account

But strangely it is not working. Only default ringtone is getting applied even after I changed it a thousand times. – NLV Jun 5 '13 at 11:57
