How to Download Twitter Videos on iPhone and Android?

While browsing Twitter, we frequently come across video clips that are worth sharing. But Twitter does not offer a native video download option. So, we have to use other third-party apps and websites to get the job done. Let me show you how to download Twitter videos on iPhone, Android, and Computer.

How to Save Twitter Videos to iPhone Camera Roll

There are two primary ways to download videos from Twitter to camera roll on iPhone. One involves Shortcuts, and the other uses third party iOS file manager apps. Let me show you both.

I. Using Shortcuts
