Twitter has well over 300 million users around the world, and they don't all speak the same language. Soon you may not even notice as the micro-blogging platform is experimenting with automatically translating tweets in your stream.

Translation is already a feature of Twitter, but it's not automatic. Tweets are presented in the language they were written in, but a "Translate Tweet" option appears below the text if you are logged in to your account.
