Our push notifications work as follows:
- For each room you're in on Gitter: 20 seconds after the first message in the room, we send you a push notification.
- If you don't log in, we'll send a second message, two minutes later which is a digest of the subsequent messages.
- If you do not respond to that message, we do not send you any further messages, until you next log into Gitter.
- Immediately after you've logged into a room, we reset and will notify you within 20 seconds of the next message.
This scheme allows us to let you know when there is activity, without overloading you with messages.
