    I'm suddenly not able to see the retweets and favorites for any tweet not only on my own twitter account but on all twitter accounts. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Probably shadow banned for excessive following / liking.

    Shadow bans work like this : robots can't tell they've been shadow banned, but humans can. So shadow bans work against bots : the bot keeps wasting server resources and posting all over the place but nothing is being seen by anyone.

    What you describe sounds like a shadow ban because what you did looked like a bot job.

    No its not a ban, Twitter was down last night due to an update, so your account is fine.

    About the shadow ban theory, if you simply logout, change browser, pc or IP you should be able to see your tweets.
    But maybe it was just a bug as jdez1315 mentioned.

    Nope, twitter was down at the time of posting. No retweets and favs went above 100 and couldnt be seen directly from the timeline. It was down for around an hour.
