Keep notification screen state when coming back to it [off-topic]

This is an idea/request/food for thought, and this is the use case:
1. You get a notification that is grouped (e.g., Twitter)
2. You go to the notifications view
3. You click on Twitter in this case
4. Browse through the tweets until you find one that contains a link that you are interested in
5. Click on the link, open a web page (or whatever action, as was requested elsewhere), read, be happy, come back to the notifications screen
6. Boom, you have to start all over again as you are no longer in your new tweets list

Maybe it's just me, but I find this behaviour a bit annoying - it would be nice if the notifications screen remained where I left it before I went to the browser or any application. I'm happy to go back myself to the main screen.

I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere else, but do let me know if this is a duplicate (NB: it won't be a duplicate to me if this request is buried in an answer/comment elsewhere).

I thought about the same. I even think the "take me back to where I came from" behavior could/should be used throughout the whole Sailfish UI regardless of the screen/app. When I am in an app which opens another app (clicking on URL, opening document attached to email, opening file from file manager, ...) then swipe from the side should get me right to the place the new app was called from (notification, email, file manager, ...). Eventually swipe from one side would get me back, swipe from the other side would switch to the home screen.

Hi.. i share the same opinion... I am used to my N9 and therefore used to see all my notifications in one glance....

if i delete them they would disappear but if not they would just sit there and wait for me too go through all of them (twitter) or other feeds....

it would be great and easier to swipe up and instead of seeing how many notifications you have, WHAT it says just like on the N9...

kind Regards
