As part of the dashboard update, Microsoft has decided to remove the Twitter and Facebook apps from the dashboard completely. At this time, it is unclear whether new versions of the apps will be released. However, there are some indications that suggest that Twitter and Facebook are now intended to be accessed through Internet Explorer for the Xbox.

How do you feel about this surprising move by Microsoft? Did you use Twitter and Facebook on your console and if so, are you happy about having to use IE to access those sites?
