[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 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.

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.

Plenty of people above having the same issue with no definitive reasoning. Could be rate limiting, could be free tier limits, could be API bug, could be something else.

This works fine for me:

setInterval(() => {
  const d = document.querySelector('div[data-testid="unlike"]')
  if(d) {
    d.click()
  } else {
    window.scrollTo(0, document.body.scrollHeight)
  }
}, 1000)

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

works for me as well

is there one that likes and unlikes the tweets in your likes that for some reason are unliked but haven't been removed?

It does not work for me, I also tried this script:

setInterval(() => {
const d = document.querySelector('div[data-testid="unlike"]')
if(d) {
d.click()
} else {
window.scrollTo(0, document.body.scrollHeight)
}
}, 1000)

And didn't worked also ):

Is there anyone who deletes DMs chat?

It didn't work for me, so I tried waiting 100 milliseconds and it seemed to work, odd.
setInterval(() => {
for (const d of document.querySelectorAll('div[data-testid="unlike"]')) {
d.click()
}
window.scrollTo(0, document.body.scrollHeight)
setTimeout(pass, 100);
}, 1000)

function getAllTweetButtons() {
return Array.from(document.querySelectorAll('.tweet-interact-favorite'));
}

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

async function processTweet(tweetButton) {
tweetButton.focus();
tweetButton.click(); // Click to like (if not liked) or unlike (if liked)
await wait(1000); // Reduced wait time

// Check if the tweet is still liked, if so, click again to unlike
if (tweetButton.classList.contains('tweet-interact-favorited')) {
tweetButton.click(); // Click again to ensure it's unliked
await wait(500); // Reduced wait time
console.log('Ensured tweet is unliked');
} else {
console.log('Processed tweet');
}
}

async function removeAll() {
let count = 0;
let tweetButtons = getAllTweetButtons();

while (count < 500 && tweetButtons.length > 0) {
for (let i = 0; i < tweetButtons.length && count < 500; i++) {
await processTweet(tweetButtons[i]);
count++;
if (count % 50 === 0) {
console.log('Waiting to prevent rate-limiting');
await wait(15000); // Wait to prevent rate-limiting
}
}

// Scroll to the bottom of the page to load more tweets
window.scrollTo(0, document.body.scrollHeight);
await wait(3000); // Wait for more tweets to load
tweetButtons = getAllTweetButtons(); // Refresh the list of tweet buttons

}

console.log('Finished, count =', count);
}

removeAll();


Fix for shadow likes on feed
Works with Old Twitter layouts
Modify the rate limiting waiting as neccessary
