Twitter users are reporting an unusual new feature this week – getting email updates on their own activity on the site.
While it’s interesting for company to re-affirm that it’s watching your every move, it’s a little unnecessary and most likely a bug.
Er, Twitter just emailed me to tell me that I favorited a tweet. pic.twitter.com/PoiYWqJpqb

It's too late at night for you to be emailing me about me replying to myself @ twitter. You're making my head hurt.

Some people are enjoying it though…
it's so great that @twitter is suddenly emailing me every time i reply to one of my own posts. i'd hate to miss that shit.

A Twitter spokesperson told TNW: “The notifications email bug some users may have experienced is now fixed.“
