Your Switch just left Twitter too

It seems like Nintendo, like everyone else, has finally had enough of the toxicity, the engagement farming, the NSFW replies, and the total randomness of the For You feed. The latest Nintendo Switch firmware update has removed all integration with X (formerly Twitter), Elon Musk’s social network.

From June 10th, you will no longer be able to post screenshots to X or link your X and Nintendo accounts from your Switch. Nintendo has also removed the ability to send friend requests to friends and followers across all social media platforms. Proving that it’s nothing personal against Elon, Nintendo hinted that Facebook image sharing could also be removed “at a later date.”

Nintendo is actually the last platform holder to turn its back on X integration; Microsoft and Sony disabled the feature on Xbox and PlayStation consoles last year. It’s likely that the console makers abandoned X because of the exorbitant API fees imposed by Musk, which could result in companies paying more than $40,000 per month for little-used features.

At the time of writing, Nintendo had not yet posted links to its Bluesky and Mastodon accounts on its profile page.
