PlayStation integration with X (formerly known as Twitter) ends next week with a new update for PS5 and PS4. That means users will no longer be able to upload screenshots and video clips directly from the console to the social media site.
An announcement update has been posted PlayStation support page On Monday, November 13, X says the integration will end, including “the ability to view any content published on X on PS5/PS4 and the ability to post and view content, trophies and other game-related activities directly on X. From PS5/PS4 ( or link X account to do so).”

A bummer for frequent users of this feature, which provides a simple method of posting game content to the platform, there are a couple of more involved alternatives depending on your platform. If you’re a PS5 user, you can still use the PlayStation Mobile app to upload gameplay captures to post on X. You can read how to do it here Here. PS4 users need to rely on ShareFactory and do a bit more work and you can read those steps Here.
Microsoft made the same move in April by disabling sharing directly from the console to X and instructing players to use the Xbox app on mobile instead (with some speculating the decision was made to avoid paying the platform’s then-new monthly application programming interface (API) fee). This means the Switch will be the only console to support direct media sharing to the X.
