Twitter is a microblogging social media app known for real-time updates or ‘tweets’ that its users post on the platform whenever they have updates or thoughts that they want to share. As a form of engagement, followers of the user can comment and ‘heart’ their tweets if they agree/ disagree or like the specific tweet.
The number of likes that a tweet garnered is shown on each tweet. Sometimes though, even if people like a certain tweet, it may not reflect on the person profile of the person due to the privacy settings of Twitter. The only way for a user to see the likes is if he/she follows the person or gives permission to follow them.
The main reason for this is because the accounts of the other people that you are checking out are not exactly set to the public. This means that if your account is public, they have viewed your account, and they have already seen what you have tweeted. They may have liked it, but because you are not following them, you are unable to see who exactly liked your tweet.
People usually like tweets because they can relate to what you have said, or they believe that what you have stated has some truth in it. There are some apps that are supposed to help you see who liked your tweet, but these apps do not always work.
Though Twitter is a public social media platform, a person may not be able to see every single person who has liked their tweets. This can be due to many reasons. One is that the person who liked the tweet may have their profile on private.
Though they are able to like any tweet that they wish, their settings make it that unless you are following them, you will not be able to see their activity. Another reason why a person is not able to see all of their likes could be due to the popularity of the tweet. If a tweet gets over 100 likes, they will not be able to see each subsequent person who likes the tweet.
There is a good reason why you may not see who has liked your tweet. It can be because of the settings of the profiles of people who liked your tweet. You may see, for example, that there are eight people who liked your tweet, but when you check the names, you can only see four people.
Their profiles may be in public; that’s why you can see them. You cannot see those that have their profiles set to private that liked your tweet. It is best that you will download the right app that will help you see everyone who liked your tweet. Most people feel that this is too much effort for them, though.
On several occasions, we tweet some contents online, and they are being liked by people. Thereafter, you are interested in seeing the people that liked your tweet, and in the process of trying all your social media experiences, you discovered you just could not see some or even all that liked your tweet.
One major reason for this is that; you most likely have a public account whereby anybody can access, while the people that liked your tweet have a private account. So, if you are not one of their followers, you will not be able to see all their details. However, you can obtain the right app, which you will surely enjoy using to check all the likes on your tweet. A good example of the right app to obtain for this is the Tweet Deck. Another reason why you may not be able to see all the likes on your tweet is if your tweet gains so much popularity, and you have over 100 likes; you may not be able to view all that liked your tweet.
You may check your Twitter account and see that there are different people who have liked your tweet. You tried to check who among them are people that you know, but you were unable to find out who actually liked your tweet.
The main reason for this is because their accounts are private, and you are not following them. They may have liked your tweet because your profile is public, or they may be following you although you are not following them back. If you would like to see the people who liked your tweet, the best thing that you can do is to use the right app like Tweet Deck. You will be surprised by the things that you will discover because of this.
Tweets are 260 character lines on the social media platform Twitter. There are many reasons why one can't see everybody who liked their tweet. One reason is that the person who wanted the tweet may have their profile on private.
When a pattern is on private, it protects them from all aspects of Twitter, unless the person is following them. Another reason is if the tweet has become popular. When a tweet gets over 100 likes, the users are unable to be seen. However, there are ways to get full details of a tweet, like downloading a third-party Twitter application like Tweetdeck.
Unless you’ve made your tweets private, you can see who liked your tweets by looking in your Twitter notifications. Make sure your notifications in your settings are set to ON. If someone liked your tweet and their Twitter account is private, you won’t be able to see who they are unless they have given you permission to follow them. It is also worth noting that Twitter limits the number of people you can see to 100 so if more than 100 people liked your tweet, you won’t be able to see more than the first 100 people.
You may also be able to see who liked your tweets by using TweetDeck which is a social media dashboard application for the management of Twitter accounts. Twitter users should be able to find answers to questions like this, and to other FAQ’s (frequently asked questions) by going to Twitter’s support page. However, in my opinion, Twitter does a pretty lousy job of providing support.
