A highly-requested feature may be gracing our Xbox One consoles soon. For a while now, fans have been asking for the ability to directly share videos and clips captured on Xbox One to Twitter just like how those on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch can. According to Jason Beaumont, Experience lead for Xbox and PC Gaming, this feature is close to being shipped.
Earlier this week, Larry Hryb teased that he had gotten a chance to play around with a lot of cool new Xbox One features, but didn’t specify what they were. This led some people to speculate and question other executives, which in turn gave us an indication as to when direct sharing will be available.
Mike your going to hate me for repeating this but please be sharing to Twitter directly like Nintendo and ps4 do it . from out xb1 with clips and pics.

Getting close! Team had to line it up with a console update because it involved changes to shell code. I review next week!

Though Beaumont said that he reviews the feature next week, it may not release to the general public that soon. It will likely be tested in Xbox Insider rings for preview members first.
In the meantime, right now sharing your content from Xbox One to Twitter requires it to be hosted on Microsoft’s servers, and will link you to that web page. You can also currently share your captured content on Xbox One to Twitter by using websites like XboxDVR.com.
