Twitter announced fifteen minutes ago that they will expand their services to Japan. The blog post says: “Despite the fact that Twitter is in English, we continue to see exciting growth from all over the world. Japan, in particular shows a very strong and growing demand for Twitter services. Movatwitter and Twitterpod are great examples.”
In order to cover Japan in a decent and Twitter-worthy way, they partnered up with Digital Garage. This company has made an investment in Twitter and will commit engineering and other development resources because hey, you gotta return the favor.
The guys from Twitter are looking forward to cross-ocean adventure: “We’re really excited about Twitter Japan because it’s a big step towards our goal of becoming a worldwide communication network.”
