You can use this handy article to learn how to save Twitter videos on your computer or phone.
How to Save Twitter Videos on a Computer in 8 Easy Steps
Follow these steps to quickly and easily download a Twitter video.
- Go to Twitter’s official webpage and find the video that you want to save.
- Click the arrow at the top of the video to get more options.
- Select the “copy link to Tweet” option near the top of the menu to make a popup appear with the URL link for the video.
- Paste the link in your browser address, but modify it so that the word “mobile” is inserted between the “https://” and “.twitter” part of the links. This changes it to a mobile version of the video link that you will be allowed to download, unlike the normal version.
- Press enter to load the video with its modified URL, and right click on the video to bring up a list of options.
- Choose “Save Video as” from the list of options.
- Pick the name, file type, and location on your computer that you would like to use for the newly saved video.
