Plume supports streaming which allows you to choose whether you want Plume to constantly stream new Tweets/content automatically or manually refresh the timeline to load new Tweets. You can find the ‘Live Stream Mode’ settings in the ‘General’ section of the app settings. Here you will find 3 options:
Never - Streaming will not be enabled and you can pull down at the top of the timeline to load new Tweets
When Plume is Running - Streaming will connect when you open Plume and will continue to load new Tweets as you use the app.
Always (instant notifications) - Streaming will remain connected even when you are not using the app. This will enable you to receive notifications instantly, even if the app is in the background and not presently open.
