Videos and GIFs are in a surge in Twitter. You might feel like sharing it with your friends and family for fun but unfortunately, the official Twitter does not have a video download option.

However, this increase in interest for downloading Twitter videos for free resulted in the birth of many third-party tools allowing you to convert Twitter to mp4. In fact, there are various ways of downloading videos and GIFs from Twitter. These methods are tried and tested and we have made sure that these methods are reliable. Now let’s talk about these methods one by one.

1. Downloading Videos/GIFs from Twitter using third-party tools

When you want to download a video you liked from Twitter, you can install a third-party tool to your system such as Gihosoft TubeGet (for windows or mac) that can help you download the videos. Apart from Twitter videos, you can also download Facebook videos using the same software. Additionally, you can use online tools such as SaveTweetVid and enter the Twitter URL containing the video you like to convert the Twitter video into mp4 and download it.

2. Download Videos from Twitter on iPhone and iPad

Twitter is the place where memes are born and is still the best social media platform for breaking news. If you have been using Twitter for a while now, you might have come across videos that you would want to save on your iPhone or iPad. Not only Twitter, but Apple also makes it impossible for downloading videos from Twitter. Follow the below-mentioned steps to download your favorite videos from Twitter.

  • Search for Documents by Readdle in Apple store and then install it
  • When you will open the app, you will see a compass button on the bottom right corner of the app. Click on this button and you will enter into a built-in Safari browser
  • Search Twitter Video Downloader on the browser and then paste the Twitter link with the video in it.
  • Once pasted, the video will be downloaded on your iPhone/iPad. However, it will only be visible in the Documents App.

There is a way to save Twitter videos without any third-party app installation. I am talking about an Inflact video downloader for Twitter. Here the way of Twitter video downloading is a rather simple one: you just copy the video link in Twitter and paste it in the input line of the Downloader. Then select the folder and enjoy the video content.

By the way, with the tool, you can save Twitter videos on any device, not just on iPhone and iPad.
