Now you can choose to be notified only when they go live on Periscope instead of every time they tweet.

Here’s how:

1. Go to the Twitter profile of the user
2. Tap on the bell
3. Tap on Only Tweet with live video

Alternatively, you can choose All tweets to receive a notification every time they tweet.
