It would appear that PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles are set to lose direct access to Twitter (now known as X). A recent update included a note on console sign-ins and the PlayStation support pages stating that support for the social media platform on both consoles is going to end later this November. Players will no longer be able to post screenshots, video clips, and general posts from PlayStation to Twitter.

PlayStation shared details about the ending of support for Twitter on PS4 and PS5 in new details posted on Sony’s support pages. There, Sony shares the full details about discontinuing Twitter support on its PlayStation consoles:

In the past, Twitter integration made it easy to share screenshots and video clips directly from a PlayStation Media Gallery to the Twitter platform. However, changes to pricing for Twitter/X’s API have forced a number of companies to cut support. Earlier this year, Xbox shut down support for Twitter following the API pricing and policy changes. Players can still go into the PlayStation app on their smartphone to download screenshots and video clips to post directly to Twitter/X, but that’s the only available option for now.

PlayStation cutting support for Twitter could be seen as another example the fall in quality of the social media platform under Elon Musk. Stay tuned as we continue to follow Twitter and X for the latest updates on the platform.
