Twitter, which has the highest diffusion power among social networking services and gathers a lot of real-time information, is used by users of all ages, especially young people.

Twitter offers the advantage of being able to quickly find related tweets when you casually search for your hobbies and interests, but have you ever experienced that images and videos you like are set to not be saved, so even if you want to download them, you cannot realize it because there is no function to save them on that screen?

In this paper, we will explain how to save twitter videos for each of PC, iPhone, and Android devices. All of them are free to use.

How to save twitter videos - 3 steps

STEP 1: Get the link to the tweet that contains the video.

STEP 2. install the dedicated application on your phone (on a PC, access the web tool).

STEP 3. paste the obtained link and save the video from the preview screen.

While a long press on an image or text on twitter will bring up the "save" menu, a long press on a video will not save it. So, once you have downloaded the twitter video, you will need an external tool.

To use such external software or application, you must prepare the link of the twitter video you want to download in advance. We will explain how to get the link first.

How to get a link to a Twitter video

To obtain the link to a video from the Twitter timeline, simply tap (or click) the "Copy Link" button on the Share button of the Twitter browser or Twitter application (iPhone or Android). The operation screen for each is as follows.

iPhone] Twitter application

Android] Twitter App

PC] Browser version of Twitter


STEP 2. and STEP 3. are explained in detail for each of PC, iPhone, and Android devices.

How to save twitter videos on PC

To save Twitter videos on PC, it is common to use external web tools. There are several ways to do this, but we will focus mainly on "TwiDropper" and "Syncer" here.

TwiDropper - for all iPhone/Android/PC

TwiDropper is a free web tool for downloading Twitter videos and can be used on iPhone and Android phones as well as PCs. You can save them to your device's storage as well as to Dropbox, a cloud storage service that saves storage space.

If you log in to your Twitter account, you can save videos, GIFs, and images sent to you via private account (key account) or direct message (DM). You can also choose from three levels of image quality (HD/high quality, SD/medium quality, and LD/low quality).

Each destination is set as standard in the following places. (except to Dropbox)

PC: The folder set as the download destination in the browser.

iPhone: The "Downloads" folder in the "iCloud Drive" folder in the "File" app. Or Photo Library.

Android: "Download" folder in "Google Photos" or "Files" app.

Below are detailed instructions using a PC web browser as an example.

(The operation is basically the same for the combination of iPhone and Safari, and Android and Chrome.)

[1] Refer to STEP 1. above and copy the link to the tweet of the video you wish to download.

[2] Enter the TwiDropper site, paste the link you copied, and click the "View" button.

How to save twitter videos on iPhone

If you are an iPhone user, we recommend the applications "Clipbox+", "Dropbox", and "Twiclip" for saving twitter videos, all of which are basically free and without login.

Here, we will mainly focus on "Clipbox+".

Clipbox+ - a viewer app that works on the iPhone

Clipbox+ is a viewer application that allows users to search for videos and watch saved videos, etc. It can be used to view documents such as PDFs as well as files in various formats. It is a great feature. It can also be used on android devices, so if you are an android user, you may want to install it.

Check the videos you want to save to the device's camera roll, swipe the menu displayed below to the right, and tap "Camera Roll" from the menu that appears. The video will then be saved to your device.


3. How to save twitter videos on Android

TwiDropper", "Syncer - URL converter for saving Twitter videos", and "Clipbox+" are all available for Android devices. There are many other apps for saving twitter videos. The three I use most often are "Fubon", "TottoPen", and "Twitter Video Saves (TwiTake)". Each has its own features, but the one we recommend the most here is "Twitter Video Saver (TwiTake)".

Twitter Video Storing Machine (TwiTake)" - 100% free application

Twitter Video Saver (TwiTake), an app for Android that allows you to save and manage videos, photos, etc., you can easily save twitter videos on your device without having to use an external URL conversion tool or log into your Twitter account.

In the Google Play Store, the name is "Twitter Video Saved Machine," but once installed on your smartphone, the application will appear on the Android home screen under the name "TwiTake. Operation is simple, and you can choose from three levels of quality for the videos you want to save. Note that videos posted from private accounts cannot be saved.

The following is a detailed description of the operation procedure on Android.

[2] When "TwiTake" starts up, you will suddenly enter the download screen. Tap the "Download" button.

[3] The video will be saved to a file in the app or in the device, and you are done. If it is in the device, the destination is the Photos (Albums) app, so check it here.

It is very easy to operate, and you can also add captions and tags and re-post the video, so please try it out.

Notes on saving twitter videos

If you download twitter videos using external tools or apps, you can watch them offline at any time. While there is no problem in principle to enjoy them privately, it is possible to violate the law depending on how you handle them, so please be careful.

Uploading saved videos without the contributor's permission is dangerous. It is an infringement of copyright and may result in criminal penalties. It is also dangerous to make a new video from a saved video.

In 2021, the scope of illegal downloading was expanded to include not only videos, but also comics and books.

Conclusion

What do you think? In this article, we introduced how to save twitter videos on PC, Android, and iPhone devices for free.

For PC operation, we recommend TwiDropper, Syncer (URL converter), and KeepStreams downloader. You can download videos by copying and pasting links from tweets with videos, or you can use KeepStreams to visit Twitter directly and download videos in your preferred quality.

For iPhone users, the best way to download videos is from a pure app called Clipbox+, which allows you to save twitter videos directly to the "Camera Roll" of the phone itself.

If you are an Android user, try using "Twitter Video Storing Machine (TwiTake)". You can save the videos you want directly to the device itself and download them immediately without having to go through an external application or log in to your twitter account.

Saving twitter videos is not a problem as long as they are for personal enjoyment, but depending on how you use them, it may be illegal, so please be careful.
