Chatter Get Notifications from API


If you @mention or send a message to a Chatter user, you get a notification in Salesforce1. This appears immediately so it's a safe bet that push notifications are being used to dispatch them. However if I then log into Salesforce1 via /one/, I can still see those same notifications in the same state (i.e. read/unread).

As an app developer, I want to be able to access this via the API or through Apex? I don't need them real-time like push notifications, but just being able to poll for them.

Parker Harris said at Dreamforce14 everything in Salesforce is API first and 10x the APIs. This functionality is in Salesforce1 so it must have an API and data behind it.  I really dont want to build this functionality, it will be huge waste of time and data.
