Your likes on Twitter are not private. Anyone who follows you or has access to your account can find your list of favorite or liked posts. It can be quite an intrusion because Twitter sometimes suggests these liked posts to your followers.

Twitter displays the number of retweets and likes on all your posts. Many users want to block this display because the number of likes and retweets on the posts may be seen as a tell-tale sign for many users not to view these posts. For example, a post with less than 20 likes may get ignored by users because of its low popularity.

To avoid this from happening, you can remove these liked posts from your account, following a few simple methods.

What happens when you like a tweet on Twitter:

  1. The person who made the post will get instantly notified of your action on their post
  2. If the original post contains account mentions and tags, Twitter will also inform those people of your “like” action
  3. If you like a retweeted post, the person who initially retweeted Twitter will also notify the post of your “like” action

Hide your number of likes on your Twitter posts:

Private profile:

You can change your public account to a private account. This will make your profile unviewable for those who are not following you. Here are the steps you can follow to change your account to private:

  • Log into your Twitter account
  • On your home screen, click on your profile located at the top right-hand side of the screen.
  • Click on Settings 
  • From the resulting menu, go to “Security and privacy.”
  • Scroll to the bottom and find the tap that says “Privacy.” 
  • There will be an empty box to check to enable the “Protect my Tweets” button.
  • After you’ve made the changes, click on “Save changes” when prompted.

Remove liked posts:

To remove likes on other peoples tweets, follow these steps:

  • Open twitter application on your mobile device
  • Log into your Twitter account.
  • On your home screen, click on your profile located at the top right-hand side of the screen.
  • Tap on the “Favorites” option
  • This will prompt a list of all the tweets you have liked (favorited). Look for the tweet that you want to remove from this list. 
  • When you find the tweet, click on the link that says “Favorited” beside the original tweet. This will undo your “favorite” action on the tweet.
  • To ensure that you have unliked or unfavorited the tweet, you can refresh the page and check if the tweet has been removed from your favorites list.

You can follow these two simple methods to remove all your likes on Twitter. This will stop your followers from seeing what posts you have liked in the past. 

Another reason why removing liked posts is opted by Twitter users is that twitter tends to use this data to suggest more similar posts related to your liked post. So if you have some posts you have liked in the past that you don’t like anymore, this can be avoided by simply removing your likes on Twitter.
