This article shows you how to download videos from Twitter in seconds. The sssTwitter Chrome extension is free and easy to install, and it allows you to save videos with a click or two.
Ever wondered how you can download a Twitter video for free and with ease, to your computer? The sssTwitter app can be used for downloading videos from Twitter, right to your desktop! Read on to learn how easy it is.
Why might you use sssTwitter to download videos from Twitter?
For personal use to watch again later
Sometimes you are busy and want to watch a video later, or even save a video to watch again. The timeline on Twitter moves quickly and whilst you can save a screenshot of an interesting tweet, you can’t do the same for a video.
You can of course choose to retweet a video to your timeline if you find it interesting, but if you’re a bit of a tweetaholic then your timeline will quickly be filled with your own tweets, conversations and retweets, making it hard to find that video you really want to show your friend later on.
A great solution is to download a video from Twitter so you can store it on your desktop with ease and watch at a later date, without worrying about losing the tweet in a sea of tweets and retweets on your timeline!
For business use
Perhaps you work in digital marketing, PR or journalism and you want to save a video for a client or even share a video you have been given permission to share from Twitter. This offers a way to save the video in MP4 format to your computer to use as your business needs.
Of course, you will need permission from the video owner to use any videos on your own website or social media channels.
