Being a Twitter user, you surely have faced this trouble before: Twitter’s policy doesn’t allow one to download videos from the social media accounts on your device directly. This means funny videos don’t have a chance to settle down on your smartphone or computer. No worries. There’s actually a pretty simple & elegant solution to this problem.
In this article, we’ll be reviewing how to download any video from Twitter onto your PC or any other device. The goal (having any desired videos on your Mac, iPhone, AND Windows) is much closer than it looks. So, let’s get started?
Tutorial 1. General
This operation will not take more than 2 minutes, including reading and downloading. Here are short instructions made for Android but actually, these steps aren’t different for PC or iOS.
- Open the video you want to download in a separate tab on your browser.
2. Copy its link.
3. Visit ssstwitter.com and put the link in the corresponding window, or, as an option, don’t leave the previous tab – edit its link slightly by adding three S before the domain name of the site (twitter.com → ssstwitter.com).
4. Make sure that you’ve chosen the correct video, tap on the desired quality of the file – and here we are, having a clear win again.
Note: In the newest versions of the Android Chrome browser tapping on the video’s quality will only open it in a new tab. But don’t panic – simply find a downloading symbol in the Settings (three dots, placed in line) and press it. After that, the downloading should immediately start, and a few seconds later you’ll see the media file in your Gallery or File Manager.
Tutorial 2. The tricky way
There is even a simpler solution to download Twitter video in one click!
Simply add “sss” after HTTPS:// in the tweet link which contains a video and navigate your browser to that URL!
Let’s look at the example

Please make sure that the original Tweet has a video. Otherwise, there won’t be anything to download.
