Let us see various methods on How to download gifs from twitter.
Method 1: Download TWEET2GIF for Android
Android users were very fortunate to have this app. It turns out that the Google Play Store has a very practical and free app that allows you to bypass the timeconsuming method of downloading GIFs.
This app is known by the name Tweet2gif. And as you can imagine, it allows you to download any animated GIF automatically from any public tweet. All you have to do is go to Twitter and save GIFs in the Twitter app. Touch Tweet to expand details, then touch the More menu and select the Copy to Tweet link.
Visit Tweet2gif on your Android enabled device and paste it. From there, you have the option to download it as a GIF file. You can also download it as an MP4 video file.
Option 2: Download MP4, then Create
If you are using another platform and you cannot download Tweet2gif, you still have to work to get your GIF. (Don’t worry, it doesn’t take long). The first thing you should do is upload a GIF MP4 video file to Twitter. Then convert this MP4 file to GIF file. Let’s review both.
Tip: Get it on a Mac or PC instead of a mobile device.
An easy way to download Twitter GIF as a video is to access savedeo.com. Just Like Tweet2gif, the one thing that you have to do here is to paste the URL of your tweet. Grab, paste and tap on the download option. On the new page of the website, click the download link that seems smaller on the right. Since GIFs rarely last more than a few seconds, MP4 should complete the download immediately.
Note: Depending on the browser you’re using, you may have to right-click or press the Control button and click the Download link and select the downloaded attachment file or Save the link as … Make sure it is still listed as MP4.
Time to change. Visit ezgif.com and click on GIF video on the list. Look for the saved MP4 file and download it.
You have the liberty to try different options. But if you want to, ignore other options and jump straight to the download. The only thing I would suggest you do is to change the FPS to 20 seconds for maximum fluid mobility. At last, tap on Convert to get GIF!
The dynamic GIF appears below, and you can finally do what you want to do from the start: right-clicking and saving it was not very painful, right?
