YouTube removing option to automatically share to Twitter and Google+

YouTube just announced that automatic sharing to social sites will be turned off on January 31st.
After January 31st, the ability to automatically post YouTube activity (uploads, liked videos, etc.) on Twitter and Google+ will no longer be available. We’ve found that sharing these actions with a custom message (instead of through automatically generated posts) provides a better experience for the sharer and their followers on other social networks.
The option to share to Facebook was removed several years ago.

You can still share your videos and playlistsp manually by using the Share button. Learn more about sharing videos and playlists in theYouTube Help Center:
