Accidentally retweeted someone’s tweet on Twitter? If so, it only takes a few clicks to delete that retweet. Here’s how to do it on Twitter on desktop and mobile.

When you delete a retweet, Twitter only removes the retweeted tweet from your profile. The original tweet (the one that you retweeted) remains intact.
