Sony has announced that it will remove integration with the social network Twitter (now called by some X) on PlayStation next week.
As explained by the Japanese company, starting next November 13 you will no longer be able to see content published on Twitter from PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, and the options that allowed sharing activities, trophies and other content related to the games will also stop working. games directly from the console.
Although Sony has not explained the reason, it is most likely due to the same reason why Microsoft also deactivated the integration with Twitter a few months ago: due to the abusive changes and prices in the API that Elon Musk promoted a few months ago. in a desperate attempt to increase the company’s financial profits.
The loss of these functions on PlayStation consoles is another blow for the reviled social network, which has suffered a loss of users, income and relevance since it was acquired by the South African magnate, due to a series of controversial decisions (layoffs, loss of functions, absence of moderation, proliferation of fake news, etc.). A few days ago, in fact, it was learned thanks to the new stock bonus program for employees that the current official value of the company is less than half of what Musk paid for it a year ago, going from having a valuation from $44 billion to less than $19 billion.
