This is the code I have used today and it works perfectly fine:

(function () {
    var delTweets = function () {
        var tweetsRemaining = document.querySelectorAll('[role="heading"]+div')[1].textContent;
        console.log('Remaining: ', tweetsRemaining);
        window.scrollBy(0, 10000);
        document.querySelectorAll('[aria-label="More"]').forEach(function (v, i, a) {
            v.click();
            document.querySelectorAll('span').forEach(function (v2, i2, a2) {
                if (v2.textContent === 'Delete') {
                    v2.click();
                    document.querySelectorAll('[data-testid="confirmationSheetConfirm"]').forEach(function (v3, i3, a3) {
                        v3.click();
                    });
                }
                else {
                    document.body.click();
                }
            });
        });
        setTimeout(delTweets, 0);
    };

    delTweets();
})();

^ modified the previous code to also "undo retweets"

(function () {

    var tweetsRemaining = document.querySelectorAll('[role="heading"]+div')[1]

          }
        });

you may need to refresh the page and restart the script every so often since it seems twitter rate limits loading tweets

I used this script and it worked for a while, but now my twitter likes are invisible. They do not show in my likes tab. What could be the problem, and how do I fix it?

I have used this script and it has been working for a while, do you have any of yours working for it?
