Is there an iOS app (free or paid) that sends push notifications when a new post with a certain hashtag or keyword is tweeted?

I see Twitterrific can send a push notification when I get @mentioned or get a direct message, but I can't see how to configure it to subscribe to a #hashtag and push me a notification.

Can this be done with one app or multiple apps/services?

    Given the requirements for asking questions on SR, it might be better to ask a new question there then to migrate that one (and have it closed over there).

    Have you looked into IFTTT? For example this (not a dedicated twitter client though).

  • I was able to make this happen via IFTTT. I set up a recipe to send a message to Pushbullet when my twitter account tweets a hashtag. This works for me since I am wanting to monitor a twitter bot that I control. But it doesn't seem that I could monitor for hashtags from users besides the account that I link to IFTTT.

iOS apps don't work to filter based on keyword, so you would need an app that has a server side component that reads your stream continually and then sends a push notification to your device.

I would start with IFTTT - https://ifttt.com/ and then look at Pushover - https://pushover.net - if the former doesn't meet your tastes or needs.
