With this script, you can remove all retweets you are retweeted on Twitter.
const timer = ms => new Promise(res => setTimeout(res, ms));
// Unretweet normally
const unretweetTweet = async (tweet) => {
await tweet.querySelector('div[data-testid="unretweet"]').click();
await timer(250);
await document.querySelector('div[data-testid="unretweetConfirm"]').click();
console.log('****// Unretweeted Successfully //****')
// Sometimes twitter shows your retweet but green retweet button is invisible and therefore you need to retweet again for make unreweet. This function is for that.
const unretweetUnretweetedTweet = async (tweet) => {
await tweet.querySelector('div[data-testid="retweet"]').click();
await timer(250);
await document.querySelector('div[data-testid="retweetConfirm"]').click();
console.log('****// Retweeted Successfully //****')
await timer(250);
setInterval(async () =>
// Get all tweets
const retweetedTweetList = document.querySelectorAll('span[data-testid="socialContext"]');
console.log('****// Retweeted Tweet List Collected //****')
for (const retweet of retweetedTweetList) {
const tweetWrapper = retweet.parentElement.parentElement.parentElement.parentElement.parentElement.parentElement.parentElement.parentElement.parentElement.parentElement.parentElement.parentElement.parentElement.parentElement.parentElement.parentElement.parentElement;

Here's the steps:

  1. Open your twitter profile
  2. Switch retweets tab
  3. Open your browser devtools (Pressing F12)
  4. Click the console tab
  5. Paste the code into console and wait

The script begins after 60 second.

Is there a way to make this delete retweets only within a specific time period? For example from June 2022 to December 2021?
