How to download a GIF from Twitter?

When somebody uploads a GIF on, it's automatically converted to video and Twitter, while calling it a GIF, technically is displaying a video. That's why you can't simply right click a GIF on Twitter and click "Save image...", as you normally do on most other sites. While this technique has some advantages, it's annoying if you want to save or edit the image.

Our GIF editing tools are capable of handling these links, so to you can simply paste the tweet link in any of our tools, e.g. GIF optimizer, and it will download and display the video. You can then convert it back to .gif format with a single click and download it to your computer or continue editing with out tools.

Simply open the tweet, copy the URL from your browsers address bar, (it should look similar to this, just with a different user name and post number): and paste it in our site. We will handle the rest.
