Direct Twitter sharing coming to Xbox One consoles soon
Microsoft’s Mike Ybarra and Jason Beaumont confirmed on Twitter that the ability to directly share Xbox One video game clips on the social network would soon be coming to Xbox One consoles.
Getting close! Team had to line it up with a console update because it involved changes to shell code. I review next week!

Currently, Xbox One users can send a tweet from the console with a link to a video clip hosted on Microsoft’s servers (similar to tweeting a YouTube video) but this new method will actually upload the saved video clip to Twitter itself. Numerous other services can already do this so it’s good that this ability is finally being added.
Coming very soon to Preview, ship in couple months to all we hope.

Ybarra stated that this sharing functionality will be coming to Xbox Insiders in Preview soon and will roll out to all users over the coming months.
