Today we’ve made Twitter available in Gujarati, Kannada, Marathi and Tamil, and we’ve updated twitter.com and the Android app to support these additional Indian languages.

This update means we now support six Indian languages, since Hindi and Bengali have been available for more than a year.

To make a change on the web, you can select your choice of language from “Settings” in the drop down menu on the profile.

For the Android app, users simply need to change the language settings on their mobile devices to any of the four languages.

These four languages were partially translated by a passionate community of Twitter users via the Translation Center — we couldn’t have done it without their help. By supporting Twitter in these languages, we are making our platform for live, public conversations more accessible to Indians all over the country.
