How to turn your Tweet into an animated video

Want to share Elon Musk’s latest spicy Tweet with your Instagram followers? Instead of sharing Twitter screenshots on Instagram, increase your Instagram story engagement by sharing a video of the Tweet.

With Glitterly, you can create visually stunning animated videos of Tweets in just a few minutes with a simple copy and paste. Best of all, it’s free.

What you can create:

Three simple steps:

Step 1: Click on the Tweet and copy the URL. If you’re on the mobile app, click the share tweet icon and click “Copy link to Tweet”.

Step 2: Go to and paste the URL here:

Here you can also customise your Tweet with a background e.g. a photo from Unsplash or if you’re a UI/UX designer, a gradient. Choose tweet theme, from the official light and dark themes, to 80s retro inspired themes. Select one of 10+ different animations.

Step 3: Click the “Export to video” button — download the video and share it.

And that’s it folks!

PS. You can post the tweet video on any other social media that has stories such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Snapchat, TikTok etc. The video comes with full HD quality that is optimised for the 9:16 story aspect ratio.

I built this tool for fun as an extension of Glitterly, which is a online beginner-friendly video editing app where you can create short animated videos. It’s loaded with stock videos and photos, templates, custom elements and 3D items — so you’ll never run out of content for your videos.
