Some of the internet's best videos are shared on Twitter every day. Whether you're there for memes, politics, animal clips, or sports highlights, it would be great to be able to keep Twitter videos for yourself. In order to edit them, repost them on other social media platforms, include them in a compilation, or just make sure you can watch them again at any time, you need to save them to your device.
Until very recently, it's been very difficult to download videos from Twitter successfully, but now it couldn't be easier. In this article, I'm going to show you how to download any video from Twitter online & for free, using any device or browser. You'll need to know just 3 steps:
- Copy the Video's Link
- Upload the Video to the Kapwing Studio
- Process & Download
Step 1: Copy the Video's Link
You can find videos on Twitter anywhere: your timeline, your Explore page, an account's "media" tab – you can even refine a search to show only video results. Once you've found the video you want to save, it's simple to copy its link. If you're using a computer, either right-click on the video itself and select "Copy Video Address," or right-click the URL bar and select "Copy."
If you're using the Twitter mobile app, it's just as easy. Tap the share icon under the tweet (it looks like an arrow pointing up from a tray) and select "Share Tweet via..." Select "Copy link," and you're ready to go.
Step 2: Upload the Video to the Kapwing Studio
With your Twitter link copied, head over to Kapwing.com and click "Start editing." Or, if you're already signed in, click "New Project," then "Start with Studio." This will take you to the Kapwing Studio, where you can use all of Kapwing's video editing tools in one place. Now, just right-click on the URL field and choose "Paste." The Twitter video will be uploaded to the Studio in just a few seconds.
At the moment, all Twitter videos are imported with a square aspect ratio, so if you want to maintain the dimensions of your video, just click "Remove Padding" from the right-hand menu when your video is fully uploaded. While you’re in the Studio, you can make any edit your video needs:
Step 3: Process & Download
Once your Twitter video has been uploaded to the Kapwing Studio, just click the red "Publish" button in the top right corner. Kapwing will work quickly your video will be ready to download in a matter of seconds.
When your video is finished processing, click “Download” from the right side of the screen. Here, you can also log in using your Facebook or Google account to remove the Kapwing watermark for free, if you haven't done so already.
To download your copied Twitter video to your phone, long-press on the video or click the Download button. On a computer, your new MP4 video will appear in your downloads folder. On a phone, it should be saved to your camera roll.
