Twitter Will Soon Be Available in More Languages

SMS Text

The Twitter Blog has announced  that pretty soon, the 140-character limits of Tweets will now be available in French, Italian, German, and Spanish. This is in addition to the current language supported by Twitter – English and Japanese.

The new languages will be fully  supported as soon as Twitter gets more competent volunteers who will help Twitter in translating the site.  Twitter is also promising that more languages will be supported as soon as they have finished working with the FIGS languages.

Twitter will also be sending the translations to third-party platform developers to enable them to offer multiple language support in their Twitter applications.

Although a little late in the game when it comes to multi-language support, Twitter is still hoping that making Twitter available in multiple language would encourage more users especially those who still prefer to communicate online using their native languages. And besides, other social media sites are doing it, so why can’t they?
