Tweet in Italian: the Twitter translation project keeps on growing

Tech Digest news, Twitter

Thumbnail image for twitter-logo.jpgBack in October, Twitter asked its users to help translate the site into over 70 new languages worldwide. With the Twitter translation project moving full-steam ahead, Italian Twitterers can now tweet away in their mother-tongue.

In a statement (translated by Google Translate) Twitter’s Jenna Sampson said:
“We’re excited because today with the launch of the Italian version of our site becomes even more a platform for global communication. As always, we wish to thank all the translators who have participated in the project and who have shown us their skills.”

She continued: “Now that the conversations on Twitter are enriched with increasingly diverse viewpoints on a global level, the network information will continue to grow in every nook and crevice of the planet. More events will be shared more knowledge and awareness will spread and the millions of people that feed Twitter will affect millions of others with their tweet.”

As well as English, Twitter can already be used in Spanish, French and Japanese.
