Sony is cutting off PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 integration with X (formerly Twitter), which means PlayStation console owners will no longer be able to share screenshots and clips directly to X from their consoles.
“As of November 13, 2023, integration with X (formerly known as Twitter) will no longer function on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 consoles,” Sony shared in a support page. “This includes the ability to view any content published on X on PS5/PS4, and the ability to post and view content, trophies, and other gameplay-related activities on X directly from PS5/PS4 (or link an X account to do so).” A popular gaming account on X, Wario64 also shared a screenshot of the notice popping up on the PS5.
While Sony did not provide a reason for the decision, it is mostly likely due to the pricing model X launched for the use of its API in March. Sony provided alternative ways for captures to be shared from the PS5, using the PlayStation app, and from the PS4.
Microsoft made a similar move in April by disabling Xbox clip sharing to X from consoles and Windows.
