Can you set up notification alerts for every time someone tweets?

When I check twitter I generally check the same 3-4 accounts to see what I've missed. Is there any way I can set up alerts for those 3-4 so I get a notification when they tweet?

Ahem........... What phone do you use? What OS? What app?
Generally speaking: yes, all smartphone Twitter client offer some kind of notification.

Currently using both iOS and Android! And just the standard twitter apps. Do you need a third-party app to get notifications just for specific people?

No, the official twitter app does give you notifications. iOS gobto settings => notifications.
Android? I think in accounts =>twitter.
You can set frequency of updates also (otherwise it'll kill your battery in no time). Every 30 minutes is okay. I have 2 busy accounts on my Nokia N9 and 30 mins interval keep the battery going for a day
