One of the biggest bits of Twitter news last year was its move to make trending tweets accessible to visitors without requiring them to create an account or sign in – effectively turning Twitter into an all-around news aggregation site. Now the company is bringing that functionality to 23 more countries.

“The most awesome stage”
Last year, Facebook's VP of Design thought the TNW Conference main stage was the best she'd ever been on.
Prior to today’s update, users outside the US and Japan could see individual tweets without logging in, but not trends or full timelines. Now you they can visit Twitter and see a timeline of trending events and discussions without an account.
In all, that means the expanded Twitter experience is now available in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, France, Germany, Japan, Kenya, India, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Nigeria, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Spain, South Africa, Taiwan, the UK and the US.
