Tips to enable Twitter email notifications that stopped coming

If you ever noticed that your twitter email notifications suddenly stopped arriving to your email account... check these tips.

Twitter settings

Go to: https://twitter.com/settings/notifications ... You must pay attention to 3 things:

1. "Smart setting" button:

It seems, since 2014, Twitter added this button, which may be turned on by default. "We've cut back the number of email we send to you about activity... to keep your inbox lean." Click: "Turn off smart setting" if you want to add back emails...
Many comments in twitter were aware of this issue:
- "Oh hey, @twitter. Did your "smarter email"... stop my email notifications, despite me having them selected?..." via twitter
- "So, the reason I’ve not been getting any email @twitter notifications last few days is they ‘upgraded’ to ‘smart’ settings & didn’t tell me" via twitter
- "@Twitter Since "Smart Settings" was rolled out, ALL email notifications have stopped; others reporting same bug, even w/ email enabled" via twitter
- "If anyone is wondering why their Twitter email notifications changed, check yr settings. They moved mine to "smart settings" for no reason" via twitter
- "Pro tip! Turn off the evil "smart" setting on your Twitter email notifications for your settings to actually apply" via twitter

2. Emails notifications turn on/off button:
The button, located on the top right of the page, must say "turn off" (which means it is turned on). In that way email is enabled.

3. Activity boxes
Check boxes... whatever email notifications regarding activity you wish to receive to your email. Uncheck unnecessary spam too, if you wish.
Note: Once you have checked wished activities, in order to stop receiving email notifications, it's not necessary you uncheck them... just click the mentioned "turn off" button.

Note: Do not forget to click on "save changes" button at the bottom of the page.

Email settings

Check your email account settings, just in case the emails from sender (twitter) are being blocked and/or sent to the spam folder, or to garbage directly. Sometimes, email clients can do weird things.
