Twitter to launch a feature for keyword alerts

Twitter is working on a feature allowing its users to subscribe to search results with a specific keyword (phrase or word). Once subscribed, the user will receive push notifications for Tweets about your search query. The feature was first announced by developer Dylan Roussel and appears to put Twitter’s bell notification icon next to the search box in its app. Tap the bell, and you’ll get notifications for new content on Twitter.

This feature is similar to Google Alerts but it works only for the new tweets on Twitter. Right now you can get notifications for individual users, or selectively mute or block things by keyword, but you can’t opt into specific tweets rather than specific tweeters. At this moment Twitter’s Search Subscribe is only available in the Twitter Alpha application.
