Downloading Twitter Videos

It’s happened to all of us. You see a really great video on Twitter, then you can’t find it again when you want to show it off. It’s every social media lover’s worst nightmare.

If you find this happening a lot, then it’s time to start downloading Twitter videos.

Downloading Twitter videos is much easier than you might think. It’s free, it’s legal, and it’ll help you collect all the greatest videos the internet has to offer.

Don’t rely on that wishy-washy @this_vid bot anymore. Here’s a quick dive into the best Twitter download sites.

Twitter Video Downloader

SaveTweetVid is one of the easiest ways to download Twitter videos.

The first thing you’ll see on is an ‘Enter Twitter URL‘ bar and a ‘download‘ button. All you need to do is get the URL of the video you want, copy and past it into the white bar, and hit download.

For this to work, you need the URL of the tweet with the attached video. To get this, find the tweet you want and click the icon to the right of the ‘heart/like‘ button. It looks like an arrow pointing upward.

Clicking on this will give you a few options. Select “Copy link to Tweet“. This will copy the correct URL to your clipboard.

Navigate back to SaveTweetVid, right-click on the ‘Enter Twitter URL‘ bar, and paste. Then hit ‘Download‘.

SaveTweetVid will send you to a new page with a few download options. You can choose the quality of the download, and see what filesize comes with each quality option. You can also convert the video into an MP3 (audio only) file if you want.

Hover over the orange ‘Download‘ button for the file you want then right-click on it. Click ‘Save link as‘, pick where you want your download to go, and hit ‘Save‘. Your video will now download.

Left-clicking on the ‘download‘ button will not download your video. It will just bring you to a preview of the video. To download from SaveTweetVid, you must right click and ‘save link as‘.

This is one of the most convenient sites for downloading Tweets. It has more limited options than some sites but is great for a quick video download.

Twitter Video Downloaders

This one is almost identical to SaveTweetVid, but holds the user’s hand a little tighter.

The homepage features a spot to paste your Twitter URL, and a ‘Download‘ button. It also features an in-depth tutorial if you scroll down a little further. This tutorial will teach you a few ways to find and copy your Twitter video or GIF URL.

Paste your URL and hit download. You’ll see three different downloads of varying quality.

Unlike SaveTweetVid, TwitterVideoDownloader does not show file sizes alongside the downloads. Like SaveTweetVid, though, you have to do the ‘right-click save file as‘ method. You’ll be reminded of this at the top of the page.

Downloading multiple videos is easy with TwitterVideoDownloader. Just click ‘Download Another Video‘ near the top of the page and you’ll be brought back to a fresh homepage.
