The Next Big Feature Of Xbox Live: Twitter!

Next Story

Hands-on with the official Verizon update for the Blackberry Storm

Microsoft has just announced that some new features are coming the Xbox 360 at E3. Facebook and Last.fm integration into the Xbox Live dashboard are two of them. The game Metal Gear Solid is another. But the one they seem to be touting the most right now? Twitter!

Yes, it seems the software giant, who has made some nice moves in the gaming space, has just as big of an obsession with Twitter as everyone else. You will apparently be able to see tweets and post new tweets from the console starting soon.

While, to me, this doesn’t rank up there with last year’s announcement of Netflix streaming coming to Xbox Live, it’s a pretty nice group of features to add to make the Xbox 360 more social. But the show just began, I’m sure Microsoft has some other tricks up its sleeve.
