Twitter Is Now Available In Korean, Its Seventh Language

Twitter Is Now Available In Korean, Its Seventh Language

As of today Twitter users in North and South Korea can view Twitter.com, the mobile site and the iPhone and Android apps in Korean characters.

Twitter co-founder Evan Williams, who is apparently in South Korean capital Seoul, celebrated the milestone with the above tweet, which translated means “Twitter is a real-time global information network.”

According to a release Twitter users in South Korea have grown 10x since only a year ago. There is no mention in the release of North Korea.

Korean is the seventh international language Twitter now supports, joining English, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish. Twitter says it hopes to support more languages by the end of the year, which makes sense as 70% of its user base is international.
