Download video from twitter on iPhone & iPad Tutorial
As I have mentioned, there are several ways how to do this. But on iPhone and iPads, the easiest and best way to download video from twitter is to use an app called MyMedia App. Either go to iTunes and search for this app or click here and install it right now.
Don’t worry. The app is free. The only downside is that you need to have iOS 11.0 or newer. Also, you will require 45 Mb of open space to install this app. After you have downloaded and installed this app, please follow this tutorial step by step.
iPhone & iPad step by step tutorial
- Open the Twitter app and find the tweet, that has the video, which you would like to download to your iPhone or iPad
- Tap on the Share button on that tweet and then again on Share
- Choose Copy to clipboard
- Open MyMedia app
- Open Browser from the menu in the bottom of the screen
- In the top of the app, there should be a field similar to browser, type twdown.net and tap go
- Scroll down on that site until you see a field with “Enter Video,” tap on that field and paste there what you have copied on twitter
- Tap Download, Tap on Download the file again
- Wait before the download is complete
- Type a name for the downloaded video
- The video is now downloaded in the Media.
I don’t have iOS 11.0 or newer, how can I still do this.
Read either tutorial for Mac or Desktop PC. It won’t be as easy. But you will be able to replicate this process on your iPhone or iPad. But to do that. You will have to use Safari or any other browser on your iPhone. But yes, you will be able to download those videos this way also. It will be harder to do it on your iPhone due to the smaller screen and several ads on those sites, but you can do it!
How to download Twitter videos on Mac
There are several ways how to do this on your Mac. But I am going to show you only the fastest and free way how to do this. Yes, few browser extensions can do this task, but they have several issues. It will be easier to follow this tutorial, rather than downloading software that can do this or installing a browser extension.
Step by step guide for Mac

How to download twitter videos on Android smartphone 101
Even though you would need to install an app on your Android phone to save videos from Twitter, this is probably the fastest, easiest way to do this in comparison to other devices. So if you are an android user, you are lucky. Unlike the other tutorials, this one is going to be short and sweet. But as I said before, you will need the +Download app. Either go to the Google Play store and search for this apk or click here to download.
First, install this apk on your Android device. You will have to allow several permissions before installing this application, but I would not be scared to do that since the official channel Google Play Store distributes the +Download app. So in my eyes, it is a safe app, pretty much every time you are downloading from GPS, and you don’t have to allow unknown sources, you are probably safe.
101 Android Guide
- Open the Twitter app on your Android phone
- Find particular tweet with a video
- Tap on Share Icon
- Then tap on the Share link
- The +Download app should appear as one of the first apps where you can share this tweet. Tap on it, the twitter video you would like to download, should now be imported to the +Download app and it should be downloaded or downloading to your Android device
The +Download app is not compatible with my device.
I am sorry to hear that. But don¨t worry, you will still be able to save videos from twitter to your android phone. But it won’t be as easy as with this app. Open a browser on your android device. And read the following tutorial for desktop pc. You will do the same process but on your phone. To make things easier for yourself, please open those websites on your android phone with the option “Desktop site.” So the sites will appear the same as on a desktop. Because with the number of ads on these sites, if you have opened a mobile version, you might not be able to do this without losing your mind.
How to save the Twitter video on Desktop PC & laptops
There are pretty many countless ways how you can do this on your desktop pc with windows or laptops/smartbooks etc. From websites, browser extensions to the software dedicated to this task. Before I started writing this tutorial, I have tried over 20 different ways how to do this. And the easiest, most comfortable, and luckily free way to do this was using website twdownload.com and twdown.net.
Both of them seem to work flawlessly, and they did not have as many ads as their competitors. In my test, I was using Google Chrome, which you should probably apply to because, in my eyes, this is the best browser on windows os. But you can do this also in Opera, Firefox and even Internet Explorer or the new browser Edge. It does not matter which browser you are going to use. Ok, enough talk, I am going to show you how to save Twitter videos on your computer.
Desktop PC Saving Twitter Video Tutorial
