Sony has recently announced that it will be discontinuing its integration support with Twitter, referred to as “Twitter/X” in the article, on both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 platforms.
This change, set to take effect on November 13, 2023, means that users will no longer be able to view or publish content from Twitter/X on their PS4 or PS5 consoles. This includes posting and viewing content, trophies, and other gameplay-related activities on Twitter directly from the consoles.
Elon Musk, who has been vocal on Twitter about various tech-related issues, responded to the news by stating that he would “look into” the matter.
I will look into this

While no official reason was given by Sony for the removal of Twitter integration, speculation suggests that it could be related to Twitter’s increased API fees, which have previously led to the departure of several automated accounts from the platform.
The article doesn’t provide further details on the potential outcomes of Musk’s investigation or any future plans regarding the integration of social media platforms with PlayStation consoles.
