If I like a tweet by accident but quickly unlike it, will the person still get notified?

. 2 min read

Social media is prone to accidents by nature.

You can send messages to the wrong people, you can post a different picture or you just accidentally like a tweet!

Most of the time, we revoke our actions. Sometimes we can't take it back!

The most annoying thing is that people get notified of our accidental actions.

Liking a tweet is the most apparent one.

What if I like a tweet by accident but quickly unlike it, will the person still get notified?

If I like a tweet, accidentally or not, then decide to unlike it immediately, will Twitter send a notification to the tweet owner?

I will test it with my Twitter accounts!

Like - Unlike! Will I see a notification?

I used 2 of my Twitter accounts to test this problem.

I like this tweet and unlike it immediately! Almost in the same second!

After I checked other Twitter accounts, and I saw no notifications for this action!

Okay, let's try again but now I am going to wait a bit longer.

On my second try, I wait for 10 seconds.

The result is the same! There is no notification!

Now, I will wait 1 minute on my third and last try.

Guess what happened!

Yes, this time, I got the notification!

When I click on it and direct to the post, I surely don't see any likes but I still have the notification.

So, If you like and then unlike a tweet quickly, Twitter won't notify other users. But if you wait a bit longer like a minute, a notification will be sent!

So you don't need to set your account private if you immediately unlike your like!

Be careful! 🙂

On Twitter, this is not the only accident you can do! There are worse versions. For example, you like a tweet accidentally but you are not aware of it!

It can be offensive, erotic content that you don't want other people to think of you negatively!
