[Recipe] Delete all your likes/favorites from Twitter

Ever wanted to delete all your likes/favorites from Twitter but only found broken/expensive tools? You are in the right place.

  1. Go to: https://twitter.com/{username}/likes
  2. Open the console and run the following JavaScript code:
setInterval(() => {
  for (const d of document.querySelectorAll('div[data-testid="unlike"]')) {
    d.click()
  }
  window.scrollTo(0, document.body.scrollHeight)
}, 1000)

is there a new code to remove likes? The above doesn't work for me anymore. deleted 2000 likes. 1000 left?

try using this use the refresh and ctrl+L to clear the console and start this code

const run = () => { let intervalId = setInterval(() => { for (const d of document.querySelectorAll('div[data-testid="unlike"]')) { d.click(); } }, 3000);

let scrollIntervalId = setInterval(() => { window.scrollTo(0, document.body.scrollHeight); }, 5000);

setTimeout(() => { clearInterval(intervalId); clearInterval(scrollIntervalId); setTimeout(run, 900000); }, 900000); };

run();

such a problem, in the likes, there are no likes on the posts themselves. it is necessary to like and remove, maybe because of this the script does not work? and need to be redone? likes for 2018

I am aware that this is turning into the programmer's version of playing Stairway to Heaven.

But here's mine

  • rather than estimating a scroll offset, it simply uses focus() to scroll the next item into view
  • has a backoff every 50 unlikes to prevent HTTP 429: Too Many Requests
function nextUnlike() {
  return document.querySelector('[data-testid="unlike"]')
}

function wait(ms) {
  return new Promise(resolve => setTimeout(resolve, ms))
}

async function removeAll() {
  let count = 0
  let next = nextUnlike()
  while (next && count < 500) {
    next.focus()
    next.click()
    console.log(`Unliked ${++count} tweets`)
    await wait(count % 50 === 0 ? 30000 : 2000)
    next = nextUnlike()
  }
  console.log('Out of unlikes, count =', count)
}

removeAll() 

At time of writing this is printing Unliked 1506 tweets

Pour votre information, pour tous ceux qui traversent cet essentiel, il y a une limite de 1000 likes / likes par jour et les anciens tweets aimés n'apparaissent pas comme "aimés" sur votre chronologie, vous devez donc les aimer et ne pas les aimer pour les supprimer. J'utilise semiphemeral pour supprimer les likes et les retweets. Selon https://github.com/micahflee/semiphemeral#deleting-old-likes

isn't work...

It is not working either

jbreckmckye commented Apr 2, 2023

@limeraiin You may need to increase the timeout. Wait a day or so as well, so you aren't on any LB blacklists.

I think sometimes it takes a little while for the API to fully reconcile updates.

It's also possible twitter are clamping down further on rate issues due to problems on their platform. It's a bit inexact.

Any idea how to unretweet a tweet If you’re blocked? I read this...
https://medium.com/@SeloSlav/how-to-unretweet-a-tweet-if-youre-blocked-9b4c294f4b3f
And have the tweetID...possible to modify one of the above scripts and use the ID and unretweet it in the console?

Hello, can the script be tapped so that only likes older than 30 days are removed? Would be great!

And maybe the whole thing for retweets too?

I have the same issue, but it’s only temporary: it’s because with all these calls you hit the API limits, and you can’t call it anymore for a while. Come back ten minutes later, and you should be able to delete likes again.

@rhodiumtertbutyl

Okay, so here is my experience with this. I used it about a week or so ago, and my likes were still there but they did not have the red heart on them. This morning, however, all of my likes were deleted and I only have a handful or so. It takes a bit of time for the API to catch up I think, especially if you have a lot. I had the same issues as people above, although, mine did show up for me. Just could not manually unlike them. Thanks for providing this code, really appreciate it. Sites like tweetdeleter and semiephemeral did not work for likes.

@rhodiumtertbutyl

Alright, just kidding. I went back to my original like count with the red hearts blurred out again. Interested to see why it reverted back.

OKAY here is an update: after about a month or so, my likes appeared to go back to normal and I could manually unlike them. HOWEVER, I don't think the code ended up deleting any of them. So if you plan to utilize this, make sure there's a way to only unlike a certain amount that does not fuck with the API. I don't know how to do it but someone in here might.

Checking the network request's response shows rate-limit info.

If you're running the command you'll quickly find out you can only unlike ~500 tweets in a ~15 minute period (as of September 2023)

You'll need to wait for the limit to reset– you can copy/paste the timestamp into https://www.epochconverter.com/ to figure out when it will reset.

If you are using dimdenGD extension, you can use the below updated code. I just updated the querySelector .

function nextUnlike() {
  return document.querySelector('.tweet-interact-favorite.tweet-interact-favorited')
}

function wait(ms) {
  return new Promise(resolve => setTimeout(resolve, ms))
}

Is there a way to have this first like, and then unlike tweets on the Likes page? The first script here left me with over 121K formerly liked tweets still counted and sitting under the Likes section. Only liking again and then unliking again fully removes them.

Here is a version for likes, but you can specify tweets from a specific user to delete.

setInterval(() => {
  function removePostsByAuthor(authorHandle) {
    let posts = Array.from(document.querySelectorAll('.tweet'));
    posts.forEach(post => {
      let author = post.querySelector('.tweet-header-handle').textContent;
      if (author === authorHandle) {
        let likeButton = post.querySelector('.tweet-button.tweet-interact-favorite.tweet-interact-favorited');
        if (likeButton) {
          likeButton.click();
        }
      }
    });
  }

  // Call the function with the author's handle
  removePostsByAuthor('@USERNAME'); // Case sensitive (must match exactly)
  window.scrollTo(0, document.body.scrollHeight)
}, 1000)

Here is a version for retweets, but you can specify tweets from a specific user to delete.

setInterval(() => {
function removePostsByAuthor(authorHandle) {
  let posts = Array.from(document.querySelectorAll('.tweet'));
  posts.forEach(post => {
    let author = post.querySelector('.tweet-header-handle').textContent;
    if (author === authorHandle) {
      let tweetButton = post.querySelector('.tweet-button.tweet-interact-retweet.tweet-interact-retweeted');
      if (tweetButton) {
        tweetButton.click();
        let retweetMenu = tweetButton.parentElement.querySelector(".tweet-interact-retweet-menu-retweet");
        if (retweetMenu) {
          retweetMenu.click();
        }
      }
    }
  });
}

// Call the function with the author's handle
removePostsByAuthor('@USERNAME'); // Case sensitive (must match exactly)
  window.scrollTo(0, document.body.scrollHeight)
}, 1000)

Probably a better way to do this, but it works.

Must be using the old twitter extension as the above post's OldTwitter - Easier to get element IDs.

Made a little modification, which adds a page scroll to load futher likes in case you've got really many of them

function nextUnlike() {
  return document.querySelector('[data-testid="unlike"]');
}

function wait(ms) {
  return new Promise(resolve => setTimeout(resolve, ms));
}

async function removeAll() {
  let count = 0;
  let next = nextUnlike();
  while (next && count < 500) {
    try {
      next.focus();
      next.click();
      console.log(`Unliked ${++count} tweets`);
      await wait(count % 50 === 0 ? 60000 : 10000); // Increased wait times
      next = nextUnlike();
      if (!next && count < 500) {
        window.scrollTo(0, document.body.scrollHeight); // Scroll to the bottom of the page
        await wait(10000); // Increased wait time for more tweets to load
        next = nextUnlike(); // Get the next unlike button
      }
    } catch (error) {
      console.error('An error occurred:', error);

I'm facing this issue now too. You could possibly run the script to first go and like a few hundred tweets and then after that a script to unlike them again. Or you'd have to create a counter around document.querySelector and loop through that.

Damn twitter API, these rate limits suck, how am I supposed to delete my socially incriminating twitter history if it only let's me remove 20 likes using a script before it stops letting me, twitter needs to implement an API endpoint to just remove all likes, tweets, retweets, etc. There is no way I'm gonna be able to remove thousands of likes manually lmao
