Social networks are full of multimedia content. We can find photographs, videos, or gifs. It is common to see something and want to share it with our acquaintances in applications like WhatsApp or Telegram, but many times sending the link is not enough. The account’s content may be protected, or you must be registered in the social network to see it.
To share the content without restriction, it is best to download it, but social networks like Twitter do not make it easy. That is why we have decided to make this guide in which we will teach you how to download any video or gif published on Twitter with the help of a bot and from your mobile. Although it may sound strange at first, it is very simple.
DOWNLOAD VIDEOS FROM TWITTER WITH THE HELP OF A BOT
With this method, we do not need to download an external application or use a computer. We only have to have the Twitter and Chrome applications installed. With that, we will have everything we need. In the case of not having any of these applications, we only have to visit the Play Store and download them. I don’t think it goes without saying, but we must be registered on Twitter. We review that we meet all the requirements to move on to the next step.
Once we meet all the requirements, we just have to enter the Twitter application as we normally would. The bot that will help us download the videos is called DownloadThisVideo. Its Twitter user is @this_vid. The user is the most important thing since it is the key for all this to work. The same bot has published instructions on downloading multimedia content on its profile. They are in English but don’t worry. We will guide you step by step.
Now we know the name of the bot and its Twitter user. We just have to search for the tweet with the video or gif we want to download. We only have to reply to the tweet mentioning the bot as soon as we locate it. We have to write its username; we don’t need to put anything else. Once this is done, the bot will reply to the mention with another tweet in which a link will appear.
Clicking on the link will open a tab in Chrome. This tab will find the multimedia content and video we wanted to download. Now we just have to click on the three dots at the bottom right. It will allow us to “Download” or play it remotely with a compatible device such as a Chromecast. We are interested in downloading it, so we click on that option, and that’s it; the video will be saved in our gallery so we can share it with whoever we want.
The most normal thing is for the bot to reply to the message we have mentioned, but since it is a bot used by everyone on Twitter, sometimes it does not reply or takes a long time. If we find ourselves in this situation, the easiest thing to do is go to the bot’s download page, which is personal and means it belongs to each user. On this page, we will see the videos we have asked you to download all the time we have used the bot.
To access this page, we just have to click here. A window will open in Chrome. You will realize that it is not your page but that of any Twitter user, but in this case, it is mine. To access yours, you must put your Twitter user after beta /. Once you do that, the page reloads and displays your download links. To make it easier, access this address https://fvzq4m1uk9.execute-api.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/beta/. Once inside, write your username after “beta/.”
Now you no longer have to think about how to download a video from Twitter. Within the social network, we find tools as useful as this bot. Your acquaintances and relatives will thank you for the content shared by WhatsApp or Telegram to make them smile.
