How to download a video from Twitter to your Android mobile
First of all, as is obvious, you must have the Twitter application that we have available in the Play Store installed on your mobile. Now, we are going to search the application for the tweet that contains the video we want to download. Next to the name of the author of the tweet in question there is a drop-down arrow. Open it and choose the section 'Copy link from tweet'. Now, we are going to go to the Chrome browser and open the following page: twdown.net. On the page we paste the previous link and click on 'Downolad'. On the next screen, we choose the quality at which we want to download the video and we keep pressing 'Download' for a few seconds. A new dialog screen will open where we will have to choose 'Download link'.
Next, if you want to find the video of the downloaded tweet, you must get an application that manages the files you have on your mobile. In general, Android mobiles usually have a file management application pre-installed but, if this is not the case, you can opt for one of the alternatives offered by the Google Play Store application store. A good option would be 'Files by Google', the official Google file management application. This application is free and has a weight of only 12 MB.
In this simple way, you will be able to download a video from Twitter both on your computer and on your Android mobile and have a private collection.
