Twitter is a great platform for breaking news and quirky content, especially if you’re looking for videos. Since there is no way to natively download Twitter videos on mobile and desktop you like, here are some methods that’ll allow you to do so.
How to Download Twitter Videos on Android

If you already use Twitter on mobile, this app will give you the easiest way to download Twitter videos using the share option. It has a native gallery section along with a private video section which can be password protected.
The app has a bookmark page section so you can save videos that you wish to download later
To download, launch Twitter and open the video you want to download. Next, tap on the share icon and then on the Share via option.

How to Download Twitter Videos on Chrome (Extension)
3. Twitter Media Assist
This one is probably the sleekest Chrome extension I have ever used. It gives a very discreet way of downloading videos by adding a download icon right under the video on Twitter. This one-click solution mimics Twitter’s native UI so anyone looking at the screen won’t have the slightest clue about the extension.
To download a video, simply click on the download icon below any video and your video will be downloaded in no time. By default, it generates random video names that can be changed from the extension settings section or on your computer.
- Sleek design
- Download option blends with native icons
- One-click download
- GIF download option

How to Download Twitter Videos Using a Bot
5. Video Downloader Bot
Another easy solution if you want to download any video on Twitter. Unlike other options, this one does leave a mark. Since it can only generate links when you comment on a post, it’s open for anyone to figure out that you downloaded the video. You do have the option to delete the comment as soon as the download link is active, which is what I do mostly.
To download Twitter videos using this bot, go to the video page and mention @DownloaderBot in the comments. It’ll take a few seconds and comment back with a download link which you can look out for in the notifications section. Next, you have to tap on the link that will redirect you to the download page.
Now select Download on the next page and tap on Download from the pop-up menu. Easy right?
- No installation required
- Works on all platforms
- Leaves a mark if you don’t delete the comment

How You Download Twitter Videos
Well, if you ask me, using a bot is the easiest way possible to download Twitter videos. All you have to do is mention the bot and delete the comment once the job is done. Since I don’t like installing a third-party app, I prefer the website too as it doesn’t leave a mark and there is no need to sign-in.
