How To Download GIF From Twitter

So you came upon a humorous GIF on Twitter. That’s great; healthy for you, and it appears to be enjoyable.

Some of the most popular GIFs on the Internet can be found on Twitter. However, you cannot download a GIF straight from Twitter. In reality, you may require an app to download or save a GIF from Twitter to your phone (Android or iPhone).

You’d want to keep it for your usage. That’s nice, too, but it’s a little more complex than you may imagine. The task isn’t very tough, but it does need a few more steps than you would have anticipated. However, if you’ve mastered the method, you can grab a hilarious GIF from Twitter and save it to your library in seconds.

How To Download GIF from Twitter on your PC

First, we must choose a GIF to preserve. That’s all right. I enjoy the sketch program I Think You Should Leave and the numerous memes it has inspired, so I thought I’d preserve this GIF from the episode. After all, I enjoy both the entertainment and the food.

Now that we’ve found a decent GIF, let’s go through how to save it to your computer. Please accept my apologies in advance for the number of processes involved.

  1. Right-click the GIF and choose Properties.

    When you right-click the GIF, a button that says “Copy GIF Address” will appear. This is how it should appear.

  2. Select “Copy GIF address” from the drop-down menu.

    That seems easy enough, doesn’t it?

  3. Navigate to a GIF downloader.

    This is where things become a little more difficult. GIFs are published by Twitter as tiny video files, which are far more efficient than GIF files. To store Twitter GIFs on your device, you must first download them as videos. It’s a little backward, but that’s how it is.

  4. Copy the address and paste it into the GIF, then click download.

    So, here’s how it goes: Copy the link and then click the download button. On Twitter Video Downloader, this is what it looks like.

  5. Save the GIF.

    Your GIF will appear on another page after the initial screen. Then, select download again, and an MP4 version of the Twitter GIF will appear on your screen. Click the three dots in the bottom-right corner of the video, then press download once more. This is how it should appear. You now have a version of the GIF in your download folder. But what if you want to convert that MP4 movie back into a GIF that can be used on any platform?

  6. Go to EZ GIF’s

    OK, I swear there isn’t much more work to do. A function called EZ GIF allows you to effortlessly convert video files into GIFS. It’s available here.

  7. Select and submit your MP4 video

    Choose the MP4 version of your GIF from your computer’s download folder. Then click the upload video button.

  8. Make a GIF out of the video.

    After you submit your video, it should appear on the website automatically. After that, scroll down and click the “Convert to GIF” option.
    Please keep in mind that you can clip and tweak the GIF as much as you like.

  9. Download the GIF

    OK, phew, we’ve finally reached the end of the road when it comes to storing a Twitter GIF. All that remains is for you to right-click the output image on the following page and save it with any name you like. Finally, you’ve saved your GIF.

Download Twitter GIF to your Phone

As you probably have figured by now, saving a GIF from Twitter to your phone isn’t easy.
Again, because GIFs on Twitter are videos without sound, the storing procedure is significantly more involved than it would be for a still image.

The short version is that you’ll need an app to save Twitter GIFs to your phone.

A quick aside: It could be faster to Google the GIF you’re searching for at this point; especially if you don’t want to download a new app. GIFs may be easily saved to your phone using resources such as GIPHY and other image-focused websites. If you saw it on Twitter, chances are it exists elsewhere and is only a Google search away.

Okay, but if you merely need to save a GIF from Twitter and have an iPhone, the app GIF wrapped is the best option. This is how you utilize it.

  1. Install the app
    The GIF wrapped app is available for iOS here. Regrettably, there is no Android version of this software available at the moment.
  2. Copy the tweet’s URL.
    Here’s how you do it, using the same tweet I mentioned previously.
  3. Copy and paste the URL into GIFwrapped.
    GIFwrapped offers a search box where you may paste URLs when you open the program. Put your URL in the search box and then search. It’s not too difficult.
  4. Add the GIF to your GIFwrapped collection.
    When you search for the GIF in the app, it should appear on the following page. All you have to do is save it to your library within the program (through a button on the bottom-left of the screen) and you’re done. You may then copy and paste it wherever you like.

How to download Gifs from Twitter using an iPhone

GIFwrapped is an app for iPhone users that allows them to save GIFs to Twitter. It’s free, but there’s an option to pay for a charge, which would remove adverts from the app and allow you some more personalization choices.

Step 1: Launch the Twitter app and navigate to the Tweet from which you want to save your GIF. Tap the “Share” icon, then the “Copy Link” button.

Step 3: The GIF from your tweet will now appear in the GIFwrapped gallery on your screen. Tap the GIF you want to save. Then, in the bottom left of your screen, hit the “Share” icon. Now, from the pop-up menu, select “Save to Library.” Finally, to save your GIF, choose “Save to Library” or “Save to Photos.”

How to download Gif from Twitter’s Desktop App

EZgif is a good solution for storing Twitter GIFs on a desktop PC. Here’s how to put it to use:

Step 1: Take note of the URL for the Tweet containing the GIF you wish to save.

Step 2: Navigate to the GIF optimizer on EZGif.

Step 3: Paste the URL of the tweet into the text box labeled “OR paste picture URL:”

Step 4: Press the “Upload!” button.

Step 5: You’ll see the GIF at the top of the screen, and you’ll be able to alter it from there. You may, for example, adjust the GIF’s start and end times.

Step 6: Scroll to the bottom of the screen and click the “Convert to GIF!” button.

Step 7: Scroll down again; you’ll see another box containing the GIF; if you’re happy with it, click “Save” (located in the far-right corner of the new section on your screen).

You’ll also be able to make additional adjustments in that section, such as adding text or other overlays, adjusting the pace, and optimizing or resizing the GIF.

So those are the numerous methods for downloading and saving a GIF from Twitter. Remember to give credit to the artist if you reuse a GIF!
