How to download Twitter videos on your iPhone, Android smartphone

Twitter may not be built for videos but it’s still a surprisingly good source for interesting clips. So good, in fact, that you’d want to share a lot of those so that everyone can share in the fun. Unfortunately, while Twitter does allow saving photos in just a few clicks, with videos it’s a different story. None of the Twitter apps or even the desktop site currently support video downloads. But as is the case with everything, there are workarounds. With the use of third-party apps, users can save Twitter videos to their devices. And the best part? It’s a lot easier than you’d expect.

Downloading Twitter videos on an Android device:

There are a ton of apps on the Play Store for the purpose but we recommend Tweeload due to its ease of use and the well-designed interface. Once the app’s installed, follow the steps given below.

  • After copying the link, open Tweeload and paste the URL into the text field at the top of the screen. Just use the blue clipboard icon for it.
  • Once that’s done, hit the download button below.
  • That will automatically save the video to your gallery from where you can easily share it. Alternatively, you can also hit the download icon at the top-right corner to find downloaded videos.

Downloading Twitter videos on an iOS device:

To download Twitter videos on iPad or iPhone, we’ll be using the Shortcuts app, which you can download through the App Store. Once the app’s installed, follow the steps given below.

  • The shortcut will launch, and you’ll be asked if you want your downloaded video to be high, medium, or low quality
  • Once you’ve made your selection, you can find the video in your gallery.
