Xbox 360 Dashboard Update Does Away With Facebook And Twitter

If you've already installed the latest Xbox 360 dashboard update then you might have noticed that Twitter and Facebook have both disappeared. That's not an accident. The two social networking apps are done for on Microsoft's console, at least for now.

Microsoft confirmed the news to IGN, noting that the "retiring" of the Facebook and Twitter apps are part of a plan to "streamline" apps on the Xbox 360. Games with built in status update/tweet features will still do what they're designed to do, but you'll no longer be able to open up a dedicated app for such things. Not that many of us ever did, what with smartphones and computers offering a much more attractive alternative for typing out strings of words.
