        I don't know if this is technically possible. But I think it's better to have notifications like emails and music players. You can show something like "Gravity (10)" where 10 indicates the number of unread tweets or news updates. I believe this is better than pop up notifications where you have to choose view or cancel when there is an update. While with email-like notification, you can choose to view it now or leave it later. Besides, you can easily access the application even there is no updates. I own a non-touch phone, I think this is much better than pop up notifications.

        This is going to be very useful for me as well. Nokia Social messenger is having this feature AFAIK.

        But please don't make a mess of it. make the notification as short/un-intrusive as possible and just update an icon (à la E71) instead of displaying a notification that hides half of the screen

        Apps like instant messaging clients just show an overlay above all windows to alert of new messages.

        If an actual homescreen plugin is too difficult, configurable notifications of that nature would be a good compromise.
