How to Delete a Retweet – cc @BurgerKing

Burger King Retweets

Burger King’s Twitter account was hacked today. Their profile picture was changed to the McDonald’s logo, their name was changed to “McDonalds”, and their description said that McDonald’s had purchased the hamburger giant due to the failure of the Whopper hamburger.

The company is back in control of their Twitter account now and they’ve deleted the Tweets by those who controlled their account during the hacking, but the retweets remain. I can only assume that they don’t realize that they can remove these or else they would have done so already.

To Burger King (and anyone else who wants to remove a retweet from their feed), there’s no delete button like there is on regular Tweets, but if you click on the “Retweeted” status in the Tweet itself, it will undo the retweet. That’s it.

Good luck, BK, and make sure to use a better password.

  3. I have read so many articles or reviews
