1. Remove Each Like Manually on the App or Web Version

The easiest way to remove likes on Twitter is to do it manually. The five steps below show you how to do this from the app or the web version:

  1. Sign in to your X profile and go to your feed.
  2. If you’re on the app, tap the icon with your profile picture and select Profile. For the web version, i.e., on a desktop browser, left-click Profile from the quick navigation panel.
  3. Left-click the Likes tab on the desktop browser. In the app, you must swipe left on Posts to see the Likes tab.
  4. This section shows all the posts you liked on X. Left-click the like button, the heart-shaped icon. When you do this, the heart will lose its red coloring and become empty.
  5. Scroll down to find more posts, and repeat Step 4 to remove your likes from various tweets.

However, this method has a downside — it is only feasible when you don’t have too many posts with your likes. For example, imagine doing this for 500 tweets.

2. Remove Likes on X With JavaScript Code From Github

If you liked hundreds of posts, you need a better solution to remove this activity from your profile. One option is to use a JavaScript code from Github. Executing this code won’t take too long to remove your likes. 

If you’re tech-savvy and don’t mind handling code, follow the 11 steps below on Google Chrome.

Note: You can only do this on a desktop browser. Although this guide is for Google Chrome, the steps will be similar to those of other popular browsers.

  1. Go to aymericbeaumet’s Github profile and open the “delete-likes-from-twitter. md” file. You can also paste this URL on your desktop browser —
  2. Copy the code he created and paste it into a notetaking app.
  3. Open a new browser tab, go to X, and left-click the Profile button in the quick navigation panel.
  4. Select the Likes tab to see all the posts you engaged with.
  5. Right-click anywhere on the desktop browser and select Inspect. This opens the DevTools interface on the right side of your desktop browser.
  6. Left-click Console on the top right corner of the screen.
  7. There’s a greater-than symbol (>) with a blinking vertical bar (|). Paste the JavaScript code from the notetaking app in this section.
  8. Google Chrome displays a warning and asks you to type “allow pasting” in the console.
  9. Paste the JavaScript code again and press the Enter key on your keyboard.
  10. The script starts running and removes your Twitter likes.
  11. Refresh the page to stop the script.

Although this script works well, you should be careful while copying and pasting code from the internet. Unknown code can be malicious and steal your personal information and login credentials. They can also make you engage in malicious activities without your consent.
