Turn On Notifications

For example, on Instagram App using the ‘More’ (…) menu at the top of a user’s profile page select ‘get notifications’ or for Twitter, simply tap the bell icon on the user's bio – you’ll get a mobile notification when they post a new photo or tweet (you can also use this for brands that host regular giveaways, so you don’t miss out!).
