Sonys new console, the PlayStation 5 is still notoriously hard to purchase, but Twitter just might be the best weapon for potential customers. Demand is so high that any time new stock is available from any retailer, every unit sells out almost immediately. Combine the high demand and limited supply with profit-seeking PS5 scalpers, and many have been trying to purchase the new console since it initially came out last November. Luckily for PlayStation fans in the United Kingdom, signing up for a Twitter account can make the frustrating process of landing a PS5 a bit easier.
There are plenty of online resources dedicated to helping consumers find in-stock hardware, but Twitter has become a convenient and easy way to search for consoles. Many accounts are dedicated to PlayStation fandom and the PS5 specifically, but following specific accounts and turning on notifications can help make the approach a bit more hands-off than other methods of buying a PS5. Certain accounts do an especially good job of keeping its followers in the loop on the current state of PlayStation 5 stock in the UK.
PS5 Stock UK is one such verified account that gives very comprehensive updates on the availability of Sonys latest hardware. The PS5 Stock UK Twitter account is associated with the website Stock Checker, which is an Amazon affiliate, meaning certain purchases may turn a profit for the tracking site. Multiple times a day, PS5 Stock UK will tweet an update on retailers soon-to-be-available PS5 stock. If something happens and a shipment of PS5s get delayed - or if they are reserved for specific customers, such as PlayStation 5 pre-orderers - a tweet is posted for that too.
How To Utilize Twitter To Get A PlayStation 5
Twitter is accessible from any web browser, but downloading the Twitter app and creating an account might be the easiest route for those not yet on Twitter. Accounts are free, and simply searching PS5 Stock UK brings up the aforementioned account as the first result. The best way to make sure a restock isnt missed will be to follow PS5 Stock UK (or any similar accounts that focus on PS5 restocks), and set up notifications so that no tweets get missed.
Once the Follow button has been pressed, a little button will appear that looks like an alarm bell. Clicking that button will allow users to turn on notifications for all of an accounts tweets, sending them directly to a smart phone as a push notification. This is all for the sake of convenience, and while it will result in being inundated by notifications from Twitter each day, especially if one follows more than a handful of stock notification accounts, this may be one of the easiest ways to secure a PlayStation 5 while stock remains limited.
