As of May 8, 2019, GitHub added gist notifications natively. All GitHub users will be automatically subscribed to notifications for all new gists going forward, but you have to manually subscribe to old gists, so for now we've disabled gist comment notifications for all gists created on or after May 8. We're in touch with GitHub and will update our logic as we hear more from them.
Giscus provides the comment notification system your Gists deserve.
You love Gists. They're powerful, free, and convenient. But you've probably run into Gists' one big
downfall: No notifications when anyone comments.
Receive up-to-the-hour notifications on comments on your Gists. No work on your part, free because
Tighten loves you, cancel any time.
