How to Hide your Likes on Twitter

Twitter is a social networking site in which people communicate using short messages. Those messages are called “tweets”, hence its name.

Those tweets may contain any type of content, from texts and links to photos and videos. In those tweets, you post a short message that may contain your thoughts, for example.
