Social networking site Twitter is now available in Korean! This comes as no surprise, as the site is already being used by over 2 million Koreans, and has seen exponential increases in popularity worldwide. Although Korean Twitter users were able to tweet in Hangul before, there is now a Korean language interface available to encourage even more Korean participation in the site.
During a press conference in Seoul, Evan Williams, the co-founder of Twitter, had this to say: “The Korean-language tweets have grown even faster than tweets in general. We’ve seen over 3,400 percent growth of Korean language tweets from January 2010 through December.”
According to the Joongang Daily, Williams also signed a partnership with Daum, one of South Korea’s largest web portals, which will now feature Twitter posts on its home page.
