Nintendo Switch system update live, removes X/Twitter support

Nintendo has released an update for its Switch consoles, removing support for social media platform X in the process.

We knew this day was coming, with the company previously announcing its plans to pull support for X last month.

While the company has not provided a reason for this change, Nintendo follows both PlayStation and Xbox in removing integration with the social media network since X changed its API pricing in March last year.
