How To View All Likes On Twitter
Despite the fact that there is a section on your Twitter profile where you can view all of the tweets you have liked. Twitter typically displays roughly 50 likes at a time, but what if you want to view your liked tweets from a month or two ago? That’s where you’ll need to figure out how to get to your “favorited”/liked tweets.
If you want to find old Twitter likes, follow the steps below.
- Open your Twitter account and navigate to the profile section on the left side of your screen to search for your Twitter likes or favorites.
- Go to your Twitter profile section and look for the liked tab under your profile picture. This way, you can see your old preferences.
- Scroll through the favorites after clicking on Likes.
You can’t access your oldest likes right now, but you can do so in the future.
IFTTT can be used to automatically save liked Tweets to a Google Spreadsheet.
So, by now, you’ve probably realized that it’s difficult to find what you’ve liked or favorited in the past. There is always a limit, particularly when it comes to free tools.
One thing you can do is automate the process of collecting new Twitter likes. This manner, even if you need to discover a year-old liked tweet, you can.
Let’s go through the motions.
- If you don’t already have an IFTTT account, create one.
- Select and approve the Twitter account.
- Set up a Google Drive account and connect it to Twitter.
Once you’ve linked your Twitter and Google Drive accounts, build an IFTTT recipe like this:
IF I LIKE A TWITTER, I ADD IT TO A SPECIFIC Google Spreadsheet.
When you like a tweet, it is instantly added to your Spreadsheet and kept in your Google Drive account.
Keeping all of your previous Twitter likes
When I realized I couldn’t locate a tweet I liked a while ago, I devised a method for saving all of our previous Twitter likes. You may filter by username or any term in the tweet this way. It’s also simple and free.
So, let’s get started.
Step 1: Save all of your Twitter info.
Log in to Twitter and go to https://twitter.com/settings/your twitter data. Enter your password and confirm by clicking the Confirm button. Request Archive is now available. You will be notified through email when your Data is available.
Unzip the file after downloading it. There are several.js files there. Find the like.js file among them. Something like this.
Step 2: Splitting the file and extracting each Tweet’s entire information.
You will need to utilize the Python programming language to do this. The code may be found at https://github.com/xoelop/get-twitter-likes.
Download and unzip the code from the above GitHub URL. Now Copy the like.js file from the first step into the Data folder you downloaded from the GitHub link above.
The primary script is gotten likes to csv.py, and when you execute it, it will parse thelike.js file. Then, connect to the Twitter API to download individual tweets and save them to a CSV file.
You must perform two things in order to do this.
- Get the access token by creating a new Twitter app and registering it here. It is required for the Twitter API to connect.
- Put your Twitter credentials in an. env file in the root folder you obtained from GitHub.
TWITTER CONSUMER KEY=…
TWITTER CONSUMER SECRET=…
TWITTER ACCESS TOKEN=…
TWITTER ACCESS TOKEN SECRET=…
- Install piping if you don’t already have it by running pip install piping.
- execute piping python get likes to csv.py
This manner, you’ll get your CSV file of all liked Twitter accounts in less than a minute.
To save it, open Google Spreadsheet and create a new sheet. Select File > Import > Upload. After that, just choose the CSV file and you’re done.
Why can’t I see all of my Twitter Likes?
If your Twitter likes aren’t showing up on your Timeline, this isn’t a Twitter bug. As a user named Ross McLoughlin contacted Twitter staff member @Andypiper an inquiry, he responded that it is not a bug.
It implies that if you aren’t seeing all of your likes, you’re out of sync. If there has been no action (replies, tweets, or retweets) on your Twitter account for a period of time, say months or years, your account will be archived. As a result, the Twitter website is unable to display any recent activity.
That is why most individuals believe that their Twitter “likes” are ineffective.
If you can’t see everyone who liked your tweet, it’s possible that some locked users liked it. Locked users’ profiles have been set to Private. You can only view their interactions (tweets, responses, Likes, retweets, quoted replies) if you follow them.
