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.
