Some Twitter users say likes not showing up on posts despite getting notification for the same

Twitter is not just a famous social networking platform but also a medium for millions of people to voice out their opinions or suggestions to the masses.

However, it keeps getting new updates or features which are sometimes not accepted well by the audience because of the broken functionality that they bring along.


Recently, some Twitter users have been facing problems with the likes feature on the platform.

Twitter users are reporting (1,2,3,4,5,6,7) an issue where their ‘likes’ are not showing up on posts or the number of likes is not accurate.

While some users are receiving notifications for the likes they received, they are not able to see the likes on the posts.

is twitter not showing anyone else’s likes ??? i can’t see my likes at all

Users reported the issue on Twitter and Reddit, and many of them shared screenshots to demonstrate the problem. Others have also complained that follower lists are not showing up for them either.

The problem appears to be intermittent, and some users are not experiencing the issue. However, the number of reports suggests that the problem is widespread.

Twitter is yet to give an explanation or acknowledgment of the problem.

Twitter users rely on the platform to stay informed and engage with others. The current issue is frustrating for users who want to interact with their followers and see engagement in their posts.

It is also concerning for content creators who rely on engagement metrics to measure the success of their content.

We have covered a similar instance in the past where Twitter users had faced the infamous ‘Like’ button outage in some iOS devices.

In that instance, users were able to see only the ‘view count’, ‘comment’, and ‘retweet’ buttons in the feed.

It remains to be seen when and how Twitter will catch hold of the problem and resolve the issue of likes not showing on the platform.

That said, we hope that Twitter at least acknowledges the issue so that the affected users can rest assured that a solution is coming.

Until then, please keep tabs on this story as we will update it with further developments.
