Twitter Launches Support for Italian

ItalyFlag.jpgTwitter added support for Italian Thursday, joining its already-existing English, Spanish, French and Japanese services.

The microblogging service announced the launch of Italian support on its blog, but it did so in Italian, which was no surprise, considering the fact that when French support was added, the announcement was made in French.

TechCrunch was kind enough to translate the blog post into English, and for those who are fluent in Italian, the original post by Twitter’s Jenna Dawn follows after the jump.

The English translation, courtesy of TechCrunch:

We’re excited because today, with the launch of the Italian version, our site becomes even more a platform for global communication. As always, we wish to thank all of the translators who have participated in the project and who have shown us their skills.

If you have not already discovered, here are some users who are particularly interesting Twitterers in Italian:

You can follow the famous journalists like @beppesevergnini, @radiodeejay, the radio of Linus & C., or even one of the most famous Italian singers, Laura Pausini (@officialpausini).

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 who feed Twitter will affect millions of others with their tweets.

And what better way to celebrate the launch of Twitter in Italy than a nice Tweetup-based pizza, friends and tweet. Our friends @pizzatwit will be happy to organize a pizza party and, if you want to meet lots of new friends and tweet all night, you should follow their account and help them to organize one of their famous Twitter Pizza Parties!

To use Twitter in Italian, go into your settings and select the language from the drop-down menu. Enjoy.

The Italian:

Siamo emozionati perché oggi con il lancio della versione italiana del nostro sito diventiamo ancora di più una piattaforma di comunicazione globale. Come sempre, desideriamo ringraziare tutti i traduttori che hanno partecipato al progetto e che ci hanno mostrato la loro bravura.

Potrete seguire famosi giornalisti come @beppesevergnini oppure radio come @radiodeejay, la radio di Linus & C. o ancora una delle più famose cantanti italiane, Laura Pausini (@officialpausini).

Ora che le conversazioni su Twitter si arricchiscono di punti di vista sempre più diversificati a livello globale, il network di informazioni continuerà a crescere in ogni angolo e fessura del pianeta. Più eventi saranno condivisi, più conoscenza e consapevolezza si diffonderà e i milioni di persone che alimentano Twitter influenzeranno altri milioni di persone con i loro tweet.

E quale modo migliore di festeggiare il lancio di Twitter in Italia? Un bel Tweetup a base di pizza, amici e tweet. I nostri amici di @pizzatwit saranno felici di organizzare un pizza party e se volete incontrare un sacco di nuovi amici e twittare tutta notte, vi consigliamo di seguire il loro account e di aiutarli ad organizzare uno dei loro famosi Twitter Pizza Party!
