How to save and print Twitter Direct Messages as a PDF?

Many Twitter users send and receive direct messages for personal and business communications. Direct messages via Twitter can be one-on-one conversations or group chats between multiple people. When you send a direct message on Twitter, the conversation is always private. A Twitter user you are not following can send you a direct message, but only if you have opted in to receive DMs in your Twitter settings or if you have sent a direct message to that particular user in the past.

Many Twitter users often need to transfer Twitter DMs to their Mac or Windows computer and print them out. Some of the reasons for recording Twitter chats and conversations include:

- To save and preserve memories of DMs with friends, family, or loved ones.

- Print out Twitter Direct Messages for use in court, trials, or legal matters.

- Save business or work-related DMs with clients or colleagues.

- Export Twitter links to important websites, products, or people.
