The ability to tweet from within Blizzard’s mega-MMO is going away forever.
Blizzard has announced that World of Warcraft’s Twitter integration, which enabled players to tweet about achievements, rare finds, and other activities directly from within the game, is being disabled.
“Over the next two days, we will update World of Warcraft to remove the integrated Twitter posting feature,” community manager Kaivax posted on the WoW forums(opens in new tab). “After this small update, the function to Tweet from in-game will no longer be available, and the settings which store your Twitter credentials will no longer appear. This will not require any action by players.”
Kaivax’s message was posted on February 7, which means the function should be disabled now.
World of Warcraft got Twitter integration(opens in new tab) way back in 2015 as part of the 6.1 update. Going by the responses to the shutdown announcement, it doesn’t seem to be a particularly popular feature, although some users in the replies say they tweeted from within the game at least occasionally.
