How to Download Videos from Twitter – Complete Guide
Twitter needs no introduction, the social media giant has gained a reputation as one of the most used and abused platforms online today. With hundreds of millions of users sharing Tweets every day in a vain attempt to be original and current, it’s the place to be to find all the dregs of humanity shuffling together towards the edge of a cliff. Twitter is a bedrock of original news and debate, with users able to instantly share tweets from the scene of public events, debates, election campaigns, the pub, and more.
While tweets are now limited to 280 characters (an upgrade from the original 140), they can also share photos and videos as a more expressive way of getting their point across. This feature is becoming ever more prominent on the site and as it does the desire from users to download and save videos shared on Twitter is growing.
Downloading Videos From Twitter
There are several simple ways to download videos from Twitter and store them on your device to watch later. If you’re using an Android device then you’re in no short supply of Twitter video downloader apps – although a lot of these aren’t found on the Google Play Store as they offer a feature that the prominent app doesn’t itself allow.
To install Twitter video downloader apps, you’ll have to go to the Settings in your Android device, then go to Security and allow Unknown Sources. This will allow you to install any app that isn’t officially offered by Google on the Play Store – a useful little trick to allow you to download APK files from all across the web.
It’s worth noting that before downloading any APK file, you should have a good antivirus and security app installed on your device. This will prevent any malware from slipping onto your device during installation. While most APK files are clean, you can never be too sure and it’s always better to be safe than sorry. With that out of the way, let’s get into how you can download videos from Twitter by using some free and easy-to-use apps.
Twitter Video Downloader APK
This app does exactly what it says on the biscuit tin. It’s a purpose built application that allows you to download videos from Twitter. The app is very easy to use, simply install it, open up the official Twitter app and find the video you want to download. Once you’ve found the video, you just press the share option and choose to share to Twitter Video Downloader. This will download the video onto your device. Simple as that!
What’s great about this app is that it’s much easier to use than most of the competition by offering a simple and smart way to download videos while not having to even use the downloader app itself. You can stay on Twitter and you won’t feel as though you have to mess around with other apps or URLs to get the video you want.
Once the video is downloaded, you’ll be able to find it on your device to watch offline whenever you want.

SnapTube APK – Another Great Option
SnapTube made it big as a YouTube video downloader, although the app also supports downloading videos from Twitter. While this app isn’t purpose built for Twitter, it still manages to do a good job for all your video downloading needs. Of course, the main upside to SnapTube is that you can use it to download from other social media apps like Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. If you’re looking for a multipurpose video downloader, then this is the one to choose.
To use SnapTube simply download the app, open it, then go onto Twitter through the in-built browser and find a video that you want to download. You’ll see an option to download the video – press it and it’ll start working in the background. With SnapTube apk you can download multiple videos at the same time and still get on with other tasks while they’re downloading in the background. While doing too many at once might slow your device down a litte, the option to do so is certainly a plus.
- Download from multiple sites: You can get videos from all your social media apps saved onto your device to watch offline later on.
- Multiple downloads: Want a dozen videos? Have them download quickly in the background rather than waiting for each individual one to complete.
- Free: The apk is free to use, although it’s supported by ads – still, you won’t have to pay a penny to get all your videos onto your device.
- Easy-to-use: You won’t struggle to make the most of SnapTube apk video downloader. All your favorite Twitter videos will be put onto your device – as well as those from anywhere else you want.
With so many videos now on Twitter, you surely want to get some of them saved offline to watch later – otherwise they’ll just get buried in the rest of the tweets. With these two apps you’ll be able to have them all on your device to watch, share or mash together into your own video.
It’s worth considering that while Twitter Video Downloader is the easiest way to download videos directly from the social media site, SnapTube will allow you to get videos from YouTube and Facebook too, as well as many other social media and entertainment sites. So, depending on what you want we’re sure you’ll make the right choice for you. Either way, you’ll be able to look back on the videos that made you laugh, cry, gasp and wonder what the hell is going on in the world anyway.
