Since upgrading to iOS7 on my iPhone the lock screen is bombarded with Tweets. I want to turn this off as I am sure it kills the battery and is annoying. I turned off twitter in the notification center but it had no effect.

How can I turn this off?

Are you using a specific twitter client? If so you may have to go into that client's settings. – Paul Gilfedder Oct 11 '13 at 11:41
Try deleting the app and redownloading it. – swiftcode Oct 11 '13 at 11:57

You will have to disable notifications for the specific client that you are using by going to SettingsNotification Center and tapping on your Twitter client, then disabling Show on Lock Screen.

Show on Lock Screen

If you are using the official Twitter app, you can change notification settings by opening the app and going to MeSettings button → SettingsNotifications.

I can't see this notification screen in the official Twitter app. I'm getting crappy "recommended" style notifications. Or notifications that three people I know shared the same tweet. How do I turn off only those? – Django Reinhardt Apr 10 '14 at 23:36
