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 such as WhatsApp or Telegram , but many times sending the link is not enough. The content of said account may be protected or you need to be registered in the social network to view it.
To be able to share the content without any type of 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 just have to have the Twitter and Chrome application 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 have to be registered on Twitter. We check that we meet all the requirements to go to the next step.
Once we meet all the requirements, we only have to enter the Twitter application as we normally would. The bot that will help us download the videos is called DownloadThisVideo , its user on Twitter is @this_vid, the user is the most important since it is the key to making all this work . The same bot has published instructions on how to download the 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 user on Twitter, we just have to find the tweet with the video or gif in question that we want to download. As soon as we locate it, we only have to reply to the tweet mentioning the bot, we have to write its username ; we do not 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. In this tab we will find the multimedia content that we wanted to download , in our case the video in question. Now we just have to click on the three dots that appear at the bottom right. It will give us the option to "Download" or play it remotely in the case of having a compatible device such as a Chromecast. We are obviously interested in downloading it, so we click on that option and that's it; The video will be saved in our gallery so that we can share it with whoever we want.
The most normal thing is that the bot replies to the message in which we have mentioned it, but being a bot used by all the people on Twitter, sometimes it does not answer or takes a long time to do so. If we find ourselves in this situation, the easiest thing is to go to the download page of the bot , this page is personal and this means that it is specific to each user. On this page we will see the videos that we have asked you to download in all the time that we have been using 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 an ordinary Twitter user, but in this case it is mine. One to access yours you just have to put your Twitter user after beta /. Once you do that the page will reload and show your download links. To make it easier, you have to access this address //fvzq4m1uk9.execute-api.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/beta/ once inside you write your username after "beta /".
Now you no longer have to think about how to download a video from Twitter, within the social network itself we find tools as useful as this bot. Your acquaintances and family will thank you for the content shared by WhatsApp or Telegram to make them smile.
