Twitter Blog

Following the steam generated by last feature's post on The Mozilla Blog, I bring you today's featured blog: Twitter Blog. Similar to The Mozilla Blog, Twitter Blog brings you all you need to know about the incredibly popular twitter social media service that has taken the internet by storm (almost as much as facebook!).

Naturally, trying to stay updated on the internet can be a hassle. As is the nature of technology and information, they must evolve constantly. Many people may get swept up in this thrashing river of change, but fear not; reading blogs and news sites on the subjects that interest you the most is perhaps the best way to stay in-touch.

Here is a bit from Twitter Blog to get the ball rollin':

"More than 400,000 volunteers have contributed to our Translation Center, which takes a crowd-sourced approach to making Twitter available in new languages. In fact, thanks to these passionate people all over the world, Twitter is offered in 21 languages. We’ve recently introduced it in Danish, Finnish, Norwegian and Polish — and today, we launch in Swedish.

As the number of volunteer translators grows, we’ll explore new ways to empower users to translate and localize Twitter for even more communities. Expect to see further improvements to the Translation Center in the coming year, including new translation tools and more opportunities to help make Twitter accessible to every person on the planet.

If you’d like to get involved, visit translate.twttr.com and follow @ for the latest updates about these efforts. If you’d like to read Twitter in a different language, you can change your language setting."
