How To Delete A Retweet?

Save yourself from all the "oops" moments on Twitter!

Retweeting is fun and a crucial part of the Twitter platform. People quickly come to know about trending topics because of retweets. Also, it is very easy to retweet or quote a tweet (an extended version of retweeting), where you can add a gif or photo before sharing the tweet. But imagine if you, by mistake, post a tweet by someone else? Don’t panic! The simple answer is you can delete a retweet by tapping undo retweet.

When you undo a retweet, Twitter removes the reposted tweet from your profile. However, the original tweet you reposted remains unaltered. So if you want to correct your mistakes, let’s see how to delete a retweet on Twitter.

You can also hide your retweets from the person, and they won’t be notified.

These are your primary options to delete a retweet until Twitter updates its platform with a mass retweet removal feature under the rule of Elon Musk.
