The Nintendo Switch Drops support for X/Twitter Posting


In the latest software update for the Nintendo Switch, it looks like the console has finally ended support for integrated posting on X/Twitter, a feature that was introduced to the system a few years back. With that in mind, this means that users will no longer be able to post screenshots and footage from their Switch directly to the social media platform.

The update comes with version number Ver. 18.1.0, and features some additional changes in addition to the X/Twitter support termination. As per Nintendo’s official support page:

  • The following updates were made for the discontinuation of X (formerly Twitter) integration:
    • The option to “Post to Twitter” when sharing from the Album in the Nintendo Switch HOME Menu was removed.
    • The ability to post Super Smash Bros. Ultimate screenshots from the Album in the Nintendo Switch HOME Menuu to Smash World in the Nintendo Switch Online smart device app was removed.
    • The option to link X (formerly Twitter) from “Settings” > “User Settings” > “Posting to Social Media” was removed.
  • The option to link social media accounts from “My Page” > “Friend Suggestions” was removed.
  • General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience.

Users can check out the newest Switch update on their console by heading into System Settings > System > System Update.
