How do I download Twitter videos manually?

Answered by Willie Powers

To download Twitter videos manually, you can follow these steps:

1. Open the Twitter website or app and find the tweet containing the video you want to download.

2. Right-click on the tweet’s timestamp and select “Copy link address” or “Copy link” from the context menu. This will copy the URL of the tweet to your clipboard.

3. Open a new tab in your web browser and paste the copied URL into the address bar. Press Enter to open the tweet’s individual page.

4. Once the tweet is open, right-click on the video and select “Inspect” or “Inspect element” from the context menu. This will open the browser’s developer tools, with the video element selected.

5. In the developer tools, you should see a tab labeled “Network” or “Network activity”. Click on this tab to view the network requests made by the webpage.

6. Look for a request that ends with “.mp4” or “.m3u8”. This is the video file you want to download. You can usually identify it by its size and duration.

7. Once you have found the video request, right-click on it and select “Open in new tab” or “Open in new window”. This will open the video file directly in your browser.

8. In the new tab or window, right-click on the video and select “Save video as” or “Save video”. Choose a location on your computer where you want to save the video, and click “Save” to start the download.

9. Wait for the download to complete. The duration will depend on your internet connection speed and the size of the video file.

10. Once the download is finished, you will have the Twitter video saved on your computer, ready to be viewed offline or shared with others.

It’s worth mentioning that downloading videos from Twitter may violate the platform’s terms of service or the copyright of the video content. It is important to respect the rights of content creators and use downloaded videos responsibly.

Please note that these instructions are based on the current version of Twitter and may vary slightly in the future as the platform’s interface and features evolve.
