Twitter is an enchanted platform for those who love to stay updated and connected to the rest of the world. It has about every important detail of every crucial event that is happening anywhere in the world. Twitter is common even in the remotest of the places and this unlimited access has made it a choice social platform.
People upload videos, images, and even GIFs of daily events here. Some of this content is often needed by people for future use.
The other times the video becomes viral and people need to download it to share further or keep it. But how to save videos from Twitter? If you have been asking this question, we are here to answer it. But first, you need to understand that
Twitter doesn’t let you download videos directly
You cannot save or download videos directly from twitter YET. No matter how much viral a video or photo is, or how much likes it has, you cannot download a video from twitter directly to your device. This is because twitter has not updated to inculcate this option. However, it would be nice if we get to do it without switching to other options.
That would save time and additional input. So we are back to square one. If you have to download a video or image that has an immense amount of followers and it has become a trend, what can you do? Well, the internet has the solution to every problem and an answer to every query. All you have to do is look in the right direction.
Ways to download twitter content
It is relatively easy to save photos from twitter in your device. You can do it directly by saving it or by taking a snapshot. But for videos, you have to do a bit more than that. Currently, there are two ways you can download mp4 content from twitter. One is by utilizing online websites and the other is through mobile applications.
You can use any of these methods depending on your ease. If you are a desktop twitter user, online portals are helpful. Similarly, if you use twitter on your device, applications are the ideal solutions.
But if you are an apple user or own any other device that does not allow the installation of such applications, you have to stick to the online downloading ways.
Steps to download a video
The process is quite simple. All you have to copy the desired video link and paste it on the online website or the application and click download. You can copy the link in two ways. Again that depends on what device you are using twitter on. If it’s a computer screen, copying the website link is the easiest way to have access to it.
And then you can insert it in the bar designated on the respective website. However, on mobile devices, you can click on the three dots that appear next to the username of the account that has posted the video, then click ‘copy link to twitter’. The rest of the process is the same. You can also choose the desired format in which you want to save the content.
