After reading this article, you will learn four free and easy ways to download videos from Twitter, either to your mobile devices or computer, be it a Mac, PC, or laptop. (These tips are also applicable to download GIFs from Twitter.)

As one of the most popular social media sites, Twitter has a large number of users who post and consume content on the site, including you, most likely. You can post content (called tweets) that contains texts, links, photos, GIFs, and videos. For the former three types of content, you can easily save them to your device by copy-and-paste, while for GIFs and videos, you will need to save or download them in other ways.

Then how can you save videos from Twitter? Actually, there are many free and easy ways for you to download Twitter videos (and GIFs). Follow to see how to download videos from Twitter in four proven ways.

With this tool, you can download videos from Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, and many other sites to your computer or iPhone/iPad directly using the URL.

As mentioned, in addition to downloading Twitter videos, EaseUS MobiMover also allows you to download videos from YouTube, Facebook, and many other video sites or social media sites. In a word, you can download any video from any site using the URL.

Method 2. Download Twitter Videos with Browser Extension

Using a browser extension frees you from copying the tweet URL or the video URL. That's because you will see a "Download" button under the video after you add the video downloader extension to the browser.

Among the various video downloader extensions, a popular one is called Twitter Video Downloader from SaveTweetVid. It's claimed to be the best free online extension to download Twitter videos and GIFs. After a trial, it's super easy to use, indeed. Let's take it as an example:

To save a video from Twitter with a browser (e.g. Google Chrome):

Step 1. Go to the Chrome web store to add the extension to your browser. 

Step 2. Restart your browser.

Step 3. Go to Twitter and sign in. And you will see there is a "Download" button under each video or GIF.

Step 4. Find the video you want to save and click "Download" underneath.

Step 5. In the new page, you will see all the download options. Choose the quality and format you prefer to download or convert the Twitter video to MP3.

Method 3. Save a Video from Twitter with Online Video Downloaders

  • Pros: You don't need to install any software
  • Cons: Ads and redirections

"How can I download videos from Twitter without the app?" To save Twitter videos to your computer or mobile device online without software installation, you need an online video downloader. Yes, using an online tool takes no computer storage and saves lots of time. However, you may encounter unexpected issues while using such a tool. For example, ads keep popping up, you are redirected to another unrelated site, and more. 

Speaking of online Twitter video downloaders, you can search for them on the Internet and you will see a lot of choices. For your information, some of them only work with browsers on a computer, while others may be also compatible with iOS or Android. Depending on the specific video downloader you choose, you may be allowed to download videos from Twitter to your computer only or be able to save Twitter videos to your computer as well as iPhone/iPad and Android devices.

After some trials, I prefer the one from TWSaver.com, which works well on desktop, iPhone and Android devices.

Step 1. Right-click the video you want to download from Twitter and choose "Copy Video Address".
