Looks like Ella Musk is in another pickle, and she’s decided to drag us down with her.

While Twitter recently announced changes to its API, Genshin Impact Players who use their Twitter accounts to log into the game may now need to link their accounts to another login method.

API stands for Application Programming Interface and is the software interface that allows two different applications to communicate with each other.

@TwitterDevTwitter’s official development team account, announced on Thursday (February 2) that the social media site will no longer support free API access from February 9.

Businesses, websites, and apps that use Twitter’s login feature will instead need a basic paid tier system to continue accessing the API.

The policy shift is one of many trying to monetize Twitter since billionaire Elon Musk bought the company last year.

In response to this announcement, Genshin Impact Developer HoYoverse has asked players who use the game’s “Log in with Twitter” feature to link their accounts to their emails to prevent any future login issues.

HoYoverse said in a Tweeter that they are “confirming the impact of Twitter API adjustments on game account login”.

The developer added that it was looking for “matching resolutions” and encouraged players to link their email address to their account via the official HoYoverse account page.

It’s not the first time that Genshin Impact players have experienced issues when logging into the game through third-party sites.

Last month, HoYoverse warned gamers of a growing number of cases of unauthorized logins and account thefts as a result of phishing sites from unknown sources.

The developer said it discovered that many affected accounts “logged into third-party websites and apps from unknown sources”, exposing them to phishing attacks.
