No more sharing screenshots from Xbox to Twitter directly
For many years we have been able to share screenshots taken from Xbox consoles directly to Twitter. But since yesterday it is no longer possible. The reason it has been removed is that Twitter, run by Elon Musk, has decided to charge companies an “upfront fee” of $42,000 to access its API features, Windows Central reports.
Unfortunately, this also affects the Xbox Game Bar on Windows 10 and 11, but not the Xbox app on smartphones. Apparently other companies are doing the same thing too (remove sharing). At the moment we do not know anything about whether Nintendo or Sony will follow in their footsteps.
Although we understand that Twitter needs to make money, charging to share things on the social network may be a counterproductive way to do it, what do you think?
