Proven ways for you to download GIFs from Twitter to your computer, iPhone/iPad, or Android phone.
GIF is an image file format that supports both animated and static images. Although GIFs are essentially images, you can't save GIFs from Twitter like you save other images. That's because the GIFs you upload to Twitter will be converted to a video and thus the GIF file becomes a video file. Therefore, like you need a video downloader for Twitter to download a video from the website or Twitter app, you also need a third-party application, utility, or service to save GIFs from Twitter.
Given That, here I will show you how to download GIFs from Twitter using free Twitter GIF downloaders. Some of them also work well as a Twitter video downloader with which you are able to save a video from Twitter.
It's easiest to download a GIF from Twitter to a Mac or PC since you have several ways to achieve this goal. Among the solutions, there is a free & safe Twitter video download tool, a browser extension, and an online Twitter GIF downloader.
EaseUS MobiMover (Free, No Ads, No Plugins), a reliable iPhone transfer tool as well as a free video downloader, will help you download GIFs (and videos) from Twitter to your computer or iPhone/iPad directly using the GIF address.
