Uh-oh, it looks like Xbox 360 gamers who check Facebook and Twitter updates via their console will no longer be able to do so once the Dashboard update arrives. This was confirmed by a Microsoft representative who said that Microsoft will be retiring the Facebook and Twitter apps in an effort to “streamline” app functionality. When asked by the folks at IGN if Facebook or Twitter could be making a return in the future, Microsoft declined to comment. In the meantime if you must get your Facebook or Twitter fix, Microsoft has suggested that gamers do so via Internet Explorer 9 which will be part of their Fall Update. Any Xbox 360 owners out there inconvenienced by this piece of news?
