How to View Your Own Likes on Twitter
If you have a well-curated feed, scrolling through Twitter can be both fun and informative. Most people generously tap the like button if someone makes a great point or shares a trending meme.
Depending on how much time you spend on Twitter, the number of likes you’ve left under tweets can be pretty significant. So, what if you want to go back and view the tweets you’ve liked in the past?
Maybe you want to revisit a funny post or want to unlike a tweet you don’t agree with anymore. Fortunately, it’s easy to go back and view your likes as Twitter keeps a record of them.
How to View Your Own Likes on Twitter on an iPhone
According to research conducted by Twitter, mobile users spend more time on the platform than desktop users. In fact, they’re close to 80% more likely to check Twitter multiple times per day. Presumably, apart from tweeting, they’re leaving a trail of likes on their feed.
If you’re an iPhone user and want to check your likes, here’s what to do:
- Launch the Twitter app on your iPhone.
- Tap on your profile picture in the top left corner of the screen.
- When a menu appears, select “Profile.”
- You’ll see four tabs: “Tweets,” “Tweets & Replies,” “Media,” and “Likes.”
- Make sure to move to the “Likes” tab.
You can now scroll through all the tweets you’ve liked up to that point. The last liked tweet appears on the top, and as you scroll, you can revisit tweets you’ve liked in the past days, weeks, months, and even years. However, going that far can take a lot of time.
How to View Your Own Likes on Twitter on an Android Device
If you use an Android device, the Twitter mobile app works the same as it does on the iOS platform. So, if you want to travel down the memory lane of all tweets you’ve liked before, here are the steps to follow:
- Open Twitter on your Android phone or tablet.
- Go to your profile by tapping on your profile picture and selecting the “Profile” section.
- By default, you’ll land on your tweets tab. Hit the “Likes” tab to see all your liked tweets.
Every tweet you’ve liked will be listed, starting from the last post you’ve graced with a heart.
How to View Your Own Likes on Twitter on a PC
Using Twitter on your computer may be the least popular option, but it has its perks. If you want to check the feed while working or doing homework, it can be easier to open Twitter in a browser and scroll through with your mouse.
You can also use the web version of Twitter to view your own likes and, for example, share a viral tweet with a friend. Here’s where to find your liked tweets on a PC:
- Using any browser, go to Twitter and log into your account.
- Select “Profile” from the panel on the left side of the screen.
- You’ll see all your tweets and retweets. To see the tweets you liked, select the “Likes” button.
All the tweets you’ve liked will be listed starting from the last one. The moment you like another tweet, it will be added to the list.
How to Unlike the Tweets You Liked?
While you’re reviewing the tweets you’ve liked, you might run into a tweet or two you no longer like, or perhaps one you liked accidentally and don’t want to be associated with anymore.
The good news is that there’s an easy fix for that. You can unlike a tweet by simply tapping the heart button again. Once you do, that tweet will disappear from your list of liked tweets permanently.
Keep in mind that there is no way to unlike multiple tweets at a time – you can only do it one by one. Therefore, it might be pretty time-consuming to unlike every tweet you no longer support.
Can Other People See My Liked Tweets?
It might seem unusual, but other Twitter users can find your likes the same way you do. A person can go to your profile, select the “Likes” tab, and see which tweets piqued your interest.
Of course, you can do the same – visit anyone’s profile, and you can browse through their liked tweets. It’s a somewhat obscure feature that Instagram, for example, removed a while ago.
It can feel intrusive, and many famous people and politicians have gotten in trouble that way before. Naturally, you may wonder if it’s possible to hide your liked tweets from the public eye.
How to Hide Your Likes on Twitter
Twitter doesn’t have a designated feature to remove the “Likes” tab from your profile. However, Twitter users can make their profiles private if they want. It’s not very common, as the platform functions as a place for public discourse.
Still, many users have private profiles, which means others must send a follow request to be approved before viewing tweets and the user’s tweets are not searchable. So, unless a person follows you, they won’t be able to see your tweets, retweets, and likes. Here’s how you can make your Twitter profile private:
- Go to Twitter and choose “Settings and privacy” from the main menu.
- Now, select “Privacy and safety.”
- Next, select “Audience and tagging.”
- Turn on the switch button next to the “Protect your Tweets” option.
The steps are the same whether you’re using Android, iPhone, or your computer. All of your Twitter content will be visible to people whose follow requests you’ve accepted.
The downside of this is that your tweets won’t appear in other people’s replies, and Twitter won’t push your tweets for others to see.
Your Twitter Likes Tell a Story
Viewing your own Twitter likes can be quite an adventure, especially if you’ve been using the platform for years. The odds are you’ve forgotten about many great tweets you’ve liked, and seeing them again might prompt a feeling, memory, or a laugh.
But it can also be surprising if you stumble upon a liked tweet that seems silly or inappropriate. Fortunately, unlinking a tweet is simple enough – just tap on the heart button once again.
Also, keep in mind that anyone can scroll through your liked tweets unless your profile is private. And you can learn a thing or two about someone else by looking at their likes as well.
