How to continue seeing “Likes” on X, Elon Musk’s social network

The unofficial Old TweetDeck extension is once again shown as a tool against the measures of Elon Musk’s team

How to continue seeing "Likes" on X, Elon Musk's social network
The social network X has been in the news for limiting the visibility of “Likes”, something present in the application since its origin

One of the most recent changes in X, the social network formerly called Twitter, is the disappearance of the “Like” tab as a page visible to other users. A priori, this means that each person can only see their own “Likes”, or those that receive their posts from other people, but in reality there is a way to continue seeing the “Likes” that still works without problem: the Old TweetDeck extension.

The Old TweetDeck extension, an unexpected ally

It is striking that the Old TweetDeck extension, a tool created to regain access to a TweetDeck that Elon Musk hooded, hiding it under the X Premium payment barrier, is once again rising as an ally against the changes that many users did not want to have.

The Old TweetDeck extension allows you to see users’ “Likes”, but it is also a very useful tool to manage more than one account simultaneously thanks to its design and interface. All this, in addition, without the need to make any type of outlay in X, and created by a reliable and secure team of developers.

How to install Old Tweetdeck

The installation of Old TweetDeck is simpler than it may seem at first. Logically, this is an extension designed for desktop browsers and, as it is unofficial, the download must be done through Github at this link. There you will find different versions available, depending on the type of browser, whether it is based on Chromium, such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Opera or others, or based on Mozilla Firefox, with its appropriate adapted instructions; Safari, however, cannot enjoy this support.

Once you’ve installed the extension on your trusted browser, all you have to do is access the TweetDeck tab. There you will see a screen that, by “mistake”, does not charge you if you do not pay X Premium. There is no major problem, because at that moment you just have to press the extension button, and the TweetDeck menu will be activated, just as it was before Elon Musk’s intervention. In addition, if you like the tool, you can make donations to its creators, who keep the service stable and active.

With Old TweetDeck already up and running, you will now be able to access the “Likes” of any user just by entering their profile and clicking on the corresponding tab. It has always been a visible button, so, for the time being, in Old TweetDeck you can continue to see the “Likes” of any user normally, except if they have a lock and you do not follow them, as is natural.

The “Likes”, the latest victim of Elon Musk’s changes

Since Elon Musk acquired Twitter in 2022, there have been countless changes that the South African tycoon has made to the social network: drastic staff reductions, a complete change in branding, the elimination of verified to turn it into a paid badge, or the elimination of circles, among many other things, made many users stop having confidence in the platform. And the most recent, the removal of the public visibility of the “Likes”.

In addition, as a result of the numerous changes, new problems have arisen in the social network or other existing ones have worsened, such as the proliferation of fraudulent bots, instability of the service, with frequent crashes that make browsing difficult for several minutes, or the loss of its stock market value, something that has caused Elon Musk himself to lose a fortune in assets.
