Twitter has always been one of the leading platforms offering breaking news, as well as funny stories, memes, and jokes. Saving Twitter photos from the app on your phone is quite easy, but saving photos using a desktop computer or a laptop is a bit more complicated.

However, DownloadMediaFrom has created an online tool to help you download photos from Twitter quite easily.

The Twitter Photo Downloader is really easy to use; you’ll need to follow only 3 super easy steps to finish the downloading process. The Downloader doesn’t require users to create accounts and sign up; we have no set daily, weekly, or monthly limits, and best of all - no need to download any third-party apps.

Up until a few years ago, there was no option to download photos/videos from within the app. However, Twitter added a ‘Save’ button, but not for when you’re scrolling through Twitter using a laptop or a Desktop computer.

Saving Twitter photos from your computer is a bit more complicated than what you’re usually used to, so try out the downloader to see if this might work out for you.
