Reasons Why Can’t See Comments on Twitter

While having fun surfing on Twitter, seeing interesting tweets, reading eccentric comments, suddenly you see one of the comments that is not available like this:

Of course, writings like this make you curious, right, what exactly are they posting?

In addition to the words “This Tweet is not available”, sometimes there are also similar posts, “This reply is not available” or “This quoted Tweet is not available”.

Well, there are several possibilities if you find a tweet or comment like that.

Here are 3 reasons why you can’t see comments or tweets on Twitter.

1. Tweet or comment has been deleted

If on other social media such as Instagram and Facebook, when you delete a comment or post, the comment will disappear instantly without leaving any traces.

Unlike Twitter, when someone deletes a comment or tweet, the comment will leave a trail of the words “This Tweet is not available” or “This reply is not available”.

These posts are useful for showing that someone has tweeted or commented in the column.

This is the most common reason why you can’t see Twitter comments, namely because the comment or tweet has been deleted by the owner.

So, you don’t have to be surprised anymore, especially in popular tweets or posts, you will find a lot of unavailable comments.

This is because it could be that the comment has already been replied to by someone else before it was deleted.

2. Your Twitter account is blocked

One of the reasons why you can’t see Twitter comments is that your account may have been blocked by the creator of the comment or tweet.

In fact, even if you search for the comment on the Hidden Replies page, it won’t be there.

When your account is blocked by someone, then you will not be able to see the data, tweets, posts, comments, replies, and other traces of that person’s account.

You will only be able to see it when the person unblocks your account.

3. Twitter account making tweets/comments protected

On Instagram, there is a private account feature.

On Twitter, there is a protect feature to protect your account from stalkers.

When a Twitter account is protected, no one can see the contents of tweets, comments, retweets, replies, and all kinds of posts from that account except the followers.

When following a protected account, you have to wait for approval from that account.

Well, if you see someone retweeting a post, but you can’t access the original post, then the account who created the post could be protected.

You have to follow the account and wait for approval to be able to see the post.

Well, those are the ways to see replies on Twitter, either through an Android phone or from a laptop/PC.

Apart from that, there’s also a tutorial on how to view hidden comments, and some of the reasons why you can’t see Twitter comments.
