Twitter is one of the largest social media in the world today, having about 330 million users active monthly.

1. DownloadThisVideo @This_Vid
On twitter, it is possible to save images from tweets directly to your device, but in the case of videos, Twitter does not provide such functionality. The DownloadThisVideo bot is very useful as it serves this purpose. It delivers download links for videos embedded in tweets. Through its website, you can download any video of your choice that is embedded in a tweet; all you have to do is mention DownloadThisVideo (“@this_vid”) in a reply to the tweet that contains the video you want.
The bot will reply your when your download is ready. However, Twitter bots can only send 300 automated tweets every three hours. As the DownloadThisVideo account has gained massive popularity across, it’s often affected by this limitation, thus it does not reply every tweet.

Examples are “@RemindMe_OfThis in 4 days“, “@RemindMe_OfThis in a year“, “@RemindMe_OfThis next month“, “@RemindMe_OfThis tomorrow night“, and “@RemindMe_OfThis December 20“.

And what better way to start (or end) the day, than seeing that home from space? Follow the dscovr_epic bot, which tweets random images of the Earth, as captured by NASA’s DSCOVR satellite, complete with the time and location over which they are taken. The images are breathtaking. This is one of my most favourite Twitter Bot
10. Year Progress @year_progress
Year Progress is also a fun bot to follow. It simply tweets percentage of the current year that has passed. While this seems like something really arbitrary, getting a tweet in your feed that tells you the percentage of the year can give a bit of motivation for productivity.
