Twitter Celebrated its First Year in Spanish

Although it seems like Twitter has been with us a lifetime, the Spanish version is only one year old.

Thanks to a community of volunteer translators the service began operating in Spanish on November 2, 2009. Gradually, it spread throughout Spanish-speaking users.

Twitter managed to grow globally even more after adding this service. In fact, it grew nearly 736% in Spain and Latin America, a significant figure that has helped microblogging reach more than 145 million members and growing.
