Some Twitter bots save you time by letting you download videos from the platform, while others send out important alerts like natural disaster warnings. Below are some popular Twitter bots that you can find useful on a daily basis.
1. Application of thread reader (@threaderapp)
The @threadreaderapp Twitter bot can be very useful if you are browsing a tweet with too many threads. Just reply “@threadreaderapp unroll” to any tweet, and the bot will compile it into an easily readable blog-style format.
Once done, it will send you a tweet with a link grouping everything in one place. Instead of replying to his tweet, you can also use the feed reader by retweeting with a quote “@threadreaderapp unroll” on your profile.
2. Cited responses (@quotedreplies)
Do you want to know other people who have quoted a particular tweet? This is where QuotedReplies comes to the rescue. Just reply or quote the original tweet with “@quotedreplies”.
The bot then provides you with a link. You can then tap it to view all of the quotes from that particular tweet on Twitter.
3. Download the video (@this_vid)
As the name suggests, this Twitter bot helps you upload videos to Twitter. If you want to upload a particular video to Twitter, reply “@this_vid” to the tweet containing the video you want to save.
The bot will then reply to you with the direct link to download the required video. However, given the tons of requests, sometimes the bot can be slow to respond. As an alternative you can try @DownloaderBot and @GetVideoBot.
4. Screenshots of old websites (@wayback_exe)
Always wanted to see what a website looked like in the past? @wayback_exe is an interesting Twitter bot that generates screenshots of old websites in old browsers and tweets them every two hours. It extracts the data from the Wayback Machine archive.

5. Check the Uber fare (@WhatTheFare)
@WhatTheFare is another cool Twitter bot that lets you quickly find the Uber fare between two points. Just send a tweet with a command like “taxi fare from
Since we can see the information in Uber, Google Maps, or other apps, you may not find it useful.
6. Earthquake alerts (@EarthquakeBot)
@Earthquakebot is one of the best Twitter bots you can follow right now, especially if you or your loved ones live in an earthquake prone area. The bot tweets about all earthquakes with an intensity of 5.0 or greater when they occur around the world.
It uses data from the USGS (United States Geological Survey). Also, it adds a Google Map link for every location it tweets on.
7. Each color (@eachcolorbot)
The @everycolor bot tweets a different shade of color every hour. Colors are based on randomly generated hex codes. So if you’re looking for a new color to paint your house or just want to watch a colorful stream, this is one of the best Twitter bots to follow.

Tiny Care is a really useful Twitter bot that helps you take care of yourself. It sends a reminder every hour to take a break from a busy work life with gentle tips for breathing deeply, drinking water, listening to music, going out, or things that make you happy.
Just follow the bot and turn on notifications. You can also tweet or reply to the bot for personal reminders. You can also try alternatives like @selfcare_bot, @everydaycarebot, @yayfrens, and @ 5minselfcare.
9. Progress of the year (@year_progress)
This Twitter bot generates and tweets a progress bar for the coming year. It shows how much percentage of the year has passed and how much is still to come.
It tweets every few days as the percentage changes and is very useful for keeping track of the year and your progress against the goals set for the year.
10. Remind me of this Tweet (@RemindMe_OfThis)
Would you like to receive a reminder of a particular tweet at any time? Then you can use the @RemindMe_OfThis Twitter bot.
