How to download videos from Twitter

Twitter was created for exchanging short and witty posts – “twits”. But recordings keep replacing traditional texts, and if you want to download any video from Twitter, you can’t just copy and paste it, you’ll need a special tool.

Like the one we have developed in Clideo.

It’s not an app, designed for a specific operating system. Our tool works online, and it is equally efficient for a PC or Mac computer, iPhone or Android phone.

Another advantage – our service is free and safe: your projects are stored for no more than 24 hours and are never shared with other users.

Read on and get to know how to save video off Twitter in three easy steps.

  1. Paste a link to the video

    Find a Twitter video to download and copy its URL. Then open Video Cutter by Clideo in any browser: Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, etc.

    Copy a link to Twitter video to download

    Call the drop-down menu on the right side of the big blue pane, paste the copied link to the field with a chain sign. Uploading will start automatically, and you’ll be transferred to the editor.

    Paste the link to Twitter video to download

    Alternatively, you can import files from your laptop or another personal device, Google Drive, or Dropbox.

  2. Cut the video if needed

    If you want to save the whole video from Twitter, move the sliders to the beginning and the end of the shooting. Otherwise, you may cut the recording.

    Select the whole Twitter video to save

    Set the timing manually in the boxes on the right side of the player or move the sliders. Then choose one of the options:

    • Extract selected – the rest will be chopped off. Tick the boxes “Fade in” and “Fade out” to make your visual a little bit more spectacular: the clip will start with a dark frame gradually turning into an actual image and will end slowly turning back into darkness.
    • Trim the Twitter video to download
    • Delete selected – two remaining parts will be merged. Tick the box “Crossfade” to hide the transition “seal”.
    • Cut out part of Twitter video to save

    Choose an output format. The best choice is MP4, as it is compatible with all the social media, but our tool offers a wide range of extensions, including WMV, MOV, AVI and others.

    When you are done, click “Cut”.

  3. Save the Twitter video

    Download the result to your camera roll or a desktop folder. You can also upload it to your cloud storage account. If you feel the result might be better, click “Back to edit” and start over.
