Download GIF/Videos with @DownloaderBot
@DownloaderBot let download any video or GIF image embedded in a tweet.
You can use this bot by replaying to tweets by tagging @DownloaderBot, This will create a direct link to download either video or GIF that is attached with the main tweet.
After tagging for the first time, sometimes the @DownloaderBot will not replay. To fix this, I had deleted the first tag and retagged it and followed them on twitter. After doing so, I got the replay from the downloaderBot.
Once you get the link, you can go through it and download your videos or GIF’s.
After receiving the download link, you can tag the @DownloaderBot as many times as you want. All the video’s that you need will appear in the same link. you don’t need to wait for a replay from the bot after once.
The screenshot twitter bot @pikaso_me
This @pikso_me twitter bot is designed to take screenshots of tweets. just replay to any tweet by tagging to @pikaso_me with the phrase screenshot this.
Boom, your screenshot will be there as a replay to your replay.
Thread in one page using @threadreaderapp twitter bot
Tweeps use threads to increase the audience by providing more information regarding a certain topic using threads.
Threads are one of the most effective ways to make people attract towards a post in twitter. But, it is annoying at sometimes that tweets that are part of thread’s are shared alone without context. More than that, many people find it hard to read a thread more as it is differ from simple blog posts.
So, @threadreaderapp makes threads in one link as a blog posts. you just need to replay to any tweet in a thread by tagging @threadreaderapp with the word “unroll”. so you will get the whole thread in one link within seconds.
So, these are some of the coolest twitter bots that will make your twitter experience much better using automated scripts.
