Microsoft at E3 announced that Twitter and Facebook will be made available to Xbox live this fall, but nothing about the service being either free or paid were released.
As both the services are available free worldwide so they were expected to be free at Xbox live too, but here goes Microsoft again, Yeah! you were right to be concerned about it. These two awesome services will only be available to Xbox live Gold Members free of cost not to poor silver members.
