The Lincoln Project tweeted: Describe the Trump presidency with a GIF.

They tweeted this several hours ago, but I just now saw it, thanks to a reply from George Conway.

3. How do you save the gifs from a tweet? Bunch I wanna grab.

And no, I don't tweet, so no account.

4. It is really hard and you have to dig thru code after you inspect the element.

Not something I like to do, but it is the only way I have found to get animated gifs.

Right click on the image and then click on inspect. I used to write html, so I kind of know how to dig for it.

Not easy with all the containers they use.

9. No worries, the other reply has an easier way and then I added a link to convert the mp4

to a animated gif.

Hope it helps.

5. This should do it. You first need to copy the tweet's URL.

Open the specific tweet with the gif in twitter. There will be an icon at the bottom of the tweet that looks like a tray with an arrow pointing. Click on that, and you'll find a copy link menu item.

Then go here: http://twittervideodownloader.com/download
Paste the address into the search box on that page and click download. Links to one or more sizes of the gif/video will appear. Follow the brief instructions on the page to save one of them.

Edited to add: the videos to download are .mp4 versions, not gifs. They play just fine.

8. If you use this method, then go to this site to create an actual animated gif.

Just upload the mp4 that is created and you are good to go.

Why can't I figure out the addy to the gif I want. Opened it up by itself, but addy I copied didn't work.

10. I found this..... Converts it from video back to gif.

https://ezgif.com/video-to-gif

But I'm screwing up something with getting the tweet addy right.

I'm really not an idiot. I just play one on DU occasionally.

I'm guessing they make this difficult on purpose!

12. You have to first download the mp4 using the other site tool.

Then upload (Choose File) on the ezgif site to upload the mp4 you just downloaded.

Do not try to paste the link.

13. Or BEFORE you download the mp4 you can right click on the download button and

click on Copy Link Address.

Then paste that address into the "paste video url" section on the ezgif site.

It worked for me.

Watch them during the day while hubby is working from home in another room. He won't watch them with me. He'd rather watch Moana or Big Hero Six..... and no, we don't have kids....lol
