How To Hide Liked Tweets

Likes on Twitter let others know how people feel about different opinions. Also, the Twitter algorithm suggests more content based on your likes. Some users, however, may choose to hide their likes on Twitter.

Quick Answer

Hiding liked tweets helps users to maintain their desired privacy without being judged by others. On Twitter, the option to delete all liked tweets does not exist. You can hide liked tweets by making your account private, manually unliking the previously liked tweets, or using the developer console or third-party apps.

After reading this article, you’ll clearly understand how to hide likes on Twitter. Keep reading!

Is It Possible for Anyone To See My Twitter Likes?

Yes, followers and non-followers can see your liked tweets on Twitter if you have a public profile. Anyone interested in seeing what you’ve liked can access your ‘Likes’ tab on your profile.

Furthermore, everyone who shared or was mentioned in a tweet is notified when you like it.

How To Hide Likes on Twitter?

In both our everyday lives and our digital ones, privacy is always a priority. Twitter’s feature, which allows anyone to see your likes, is a problem whether you are a public figure or a private person.

Here are some ways to hide tweets.

Method #1: Go Private

With these settings, you can make your account private, and anyone who wants to see your activity has to follow you.

Keep in mind that making your account private robs you of many opportunities to engage with others and use this open platform’s benefits.

Follow these steps to make your account private:

  1. Open Twitter on your device and log in.
  2. Tap on your profile photo in the top left corner if you use the mobile app or click more on a PC.
  3. Select “Settings and privacy.”
  4. Select “Privacy and safety.”
  5. Tap on “Audience and tagging.”
  6. Turn on the “Protect your Tweets” option.

Keep in mind that some aspects change when protecting your tweers:

  • To follow you, people must first send a request.
  • Protecting your tweets will prevent all search engines, including Google, from accessing them. Those who follow you will be able to search your tweets.

Method # 2: Manually Take Your Likes Back

This method doesn’t exactly hide the tweets. Instead, you have to manually remove the likes from the previously liked tweets. Even though it is time-consuming and energy-consuming, it gets the job done.

The following steps are involved in this method:

  1. Open Twitter and log in.
  2. Go to profile.
  3. You will find four tabs: “Tweets,” “Tweets & replies,” “Media,” and “Likes.” Tap on the “Likes” tab.
  4. All of your liked tweets will be displayed there. You’ll see a pink heart next to each tweet, along with how many likes it received. To unlike a tweet, click the heart.

That’s how you can remove likes from the tweets.

Method# 3: Delete Twitter Using the Developer Console

Unfortunately, it is not possible to bulk-delete Twitter likes at once. However, you can still do it using this method.

Despite sounding tech-savvy, it’s really not that difficult to follow. With the developer console or your favorite browser, you can unlike many tweets at once. The example steps are done using Google Chrome; some steps might differ for other browsers.

Here is how it is done:

  1. Navigate to Twitter in your browser and log in to your account.
  2. Select the “Profile” option in the left navigation.
  3. Select the “Likes” tab.
  4. Press F12 to access the developer console.
  5. Paste the code below and press enter. It will automatically unlike your liked Tweets.
setInterval(() => {
    for (const d of document.querySelectorAll('div[data-testid="unlike"]')) {
        d.click();
    }
    window.scrollTo(0, document.body.scrollHeight);
}, 1000);

Method #4: Use Third-Party Apps

Due to Twitter’s limitations, third-party tools are required to mass-delete likes. However, I won’t recommend them since they may breach your privacy and are not secure— most of these apps require your Twitter access.

Before going for these apps, ensure they are safe and won’t put your privacy at risk. It’s also possible you won’t get the service you paid for.  The safest way to choose the app is to read online reviews.

Despite all this, a third-party tool represents the easiest and quickest way to mass-delete liked tweets. Here are two of the most popular third-party apps if you want to un-favorite your liked tweets.

Twitter Archive Eraser

Although Twitter Archive Eraser is a paid app with only a desktop version, the free version can be used to delete a limited number of tweets.

With this app, you can’t access all the tweets due to restrictions from the Tweeter’s API. This app is convenient because there are no ads or popups, so users can use it anytime.

Circleboom

A second popular app that allows you to bulk delete your Twitter likes is Circleboom.

Both free and paid versions are available. Install the app, and then access its setting page to uncheck the “Show favorites on my timeline” option.

Conclusion

Hiding tweets on Twitter is a big concern for people who want to keep their activities private. Using the abovementioned methods, you can unlike tweets to a certain extent. 

Apps like Circleboom and Twitter Archive Eraser offer their service for this exact purpose. However, a few drawbacks limit their use.
