If I favorited a tweet on a person's favourites that I do not follow, will they get a notification of it?

I'm on person X's profile and I look at their favourites but I don't follow them. I favourite a video that isn't their video, just a video they favourited. Does person X get a notification I favourited the same video? Because then that would be weird since I don't follow them.

    There are tweets favorited / liked by over a million users. How would it work if everyone was notified of other users favoriting the same thing?

No, X will not get notification, but the original poster of that video will get a notification that you liked (favourite) his/her video. And it doesn't matter you follow them or not.
