Before learning about the solutions to fix can’t to see likes on your tweet, first, let’s try to understand the reasons why you are not able to see some of the likes on your tweets.

Your Account Has Been Archived

This usually happens when you have not been active on Twitter for quite a bit of time, probably months or years. In such case, Twitter puts your account into archive mode, to save up server space and serve functionality. This sometimes results in inappropriate loading of content, likes, and retweets in your Twitter Account.

Unverified Suspicious Account

You are most likely to face this issue if your Twitter account is flagged as suspicious and you are yet to confirm your identity. You would be able to browse through tweets in general, but unable to see who has liked your tweets or retweeted them.

As per Twitter, suspicious activity is when a user interacts with a lot of accounts, making it seem like a bot. This could also happen if certain kinds of tweets are followed way too much.

Internet Connection Issues

A poor internet connection is another common reason for Twitter likes not showing and can cause the Twitter likes to load improperly. In such cases, there would be a delay or failure in the visibility of who liked your tweets. So if you are facing problems in viewing who liked your tweet temporarily, then it can be because of bad connectivity.

Follow The Private Accounts

If somebody has protected their profile by making it private then it will prevent you from seeing their account activity, for example, if they liked your tweet. A Private account can be identified with a little padlock symbol next to their Twitter handle whenever they tweet, and this also appears on their profiles.

Following the private account is the only way to see any interactions (tweets, replies, Likes, retweets, quoted replies) from locked users. Attempting to follow a Private Twitter user, requires approval from the said user, whereby they can either approve your follow request or deny it. Below is an example of a private profile on Twitter.
