How to Save Photos / GIFs from Twitter on Android
For static images or photos, you can download them on the Twitter application easily. You also do not need to install additional applications in this case.
First, log in to your Twitter application and log in to your account. Then find or select the picture you want to save. Open the menu and tap “Save”. The selected image must be saved on your Android phone. You can find the Twitter pictures folder in storage with the file manager application.
For animated GIFs on Tweets, you might already know that you can’t do it like you normally do on other websites, just tap on the image and choose Save photos. This option is not available on the Twitter application.
What do you need to do? The best way is to use an application that allows GIF and Video storage.
To save bandwidth and make their servers run faster, Twitter converts all animated GIF files to MP4 video by default. This makes GIF go faster.
The problem is that when you try to download a GIF in the form of an image, you cannot download it as a video because you do not have the opportunity to save it as a GIF format.
There are fast ways that can help you do this. You can do it directly, without the need to download anything, using an online animated GIF converter from Twitter.
Step 1: Open the Twitter application on your mobile, then move to the animation you want to download.
Step 2: Press the animation to expand to full screen, tap on the menu and select “Share” .
Step 3: You will be shown sharing menu, select copy to clipboard.
Step 4: Launch the online converter from your browser, paste the copied URL in the online converter or animated Gif and press download.
Once done, you will have an animated GIF from Twitter in your gallery and you can use it to share on social networks or other Instant Messaging applications that allow sending animated GIFs.
