Twitter has announced that it will be shutting down its Roku, Android TV and Xbox apps on May 24th.
The company made the announcement in a May 22nd tweet. No reason was given for the shutdown.
However, it’s worth noting that all three versions of the app have received significant negative feedback on their respective app stores, largely due to the fact that Twitter doesn’t allow users to tweet from their accounts on these platforms. Moreover, users aren’t able to sign in to their Twitter accounts to see tweets from those they follow.
On Thursday, May 24, Twitter for Roku, Twitter for Android TV and Twitter for Xbox will no longer be available. To get the full Twitter experience, visit https://t.co/fuPJa3nVky on your device or desktop.

Instead, users are only able to see curated Twitter commentary play in the background of their device. As a result, many users left one or two-star ratings (out of a possible five) and complained that the ap lacked functionality.
“I can’t sign in or see anything I follow. Just see celebrity nonsense. Useless,” wrote Xbox user Vegantichrist.
“Worst version of twitter i’ve ever used,” said user Limybro58.
