We’re excited because today with the launch of the Italian version of our site, Twitter 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. If you have not already explored, here are some users who are particularly interesting to follow in Italian:

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

Twitter leverages volunteer translators and now has 5 language versions: Italian, English, Spanish, French and Japanese. To see the Italian version in action, log-in to Twitter, click settings and scroll down to the language drop down menu.

Buona fortuna!
