Here's an update to Twitter's plans to translate the site into other languages - Twitter is aiming to translate the site into about ten other languages at the moment but Spanish has been the first one to be completed after Japanese. Twitter admittedly has a pretty simple interface and function though so these new translations aren't essential compared to something like Facebook, but definitely a good thing to have if possible.
The most beneficial translation for Twitter would probably be Korean - it already has quite a bit of content on Twitter but Korean internet users in general still don't enjoy using sites that are written in English so a Korean interface would certainly bring in a ton of new users. People like this.
On a related note, today is another big day of protests in Iran. Though not widely reported in the media, even in between today and Ruz-e-ghods (Jerusalem Day, the last day to feature significant protests) there have been university demonstrations sometimes daily, and a few government ministers have been shouted down by students as well.
