#Fail: Twitter Finally Launches In Hindi And It’s A Namesake Feature

Like we earlier mentioned, Twitter was supposed to launch its Hindi version and our expectation of twitter enabling users to tweet in Hindi doesn’t seem to be valid anymore.


Hindi version of Twitter is just a namesake feature – once you change the language from admin settings, Twitter simply changes the text language on Twitter site to Hindi (in order to enable Hindi language, navigate to settings and change the language).

Is this interesting? exciting? No. This is anything but supporting Hindi/International language and Twitter has just done a lip service to the big picture they portrayed a few days back.

The entire concept of launching in International language is to reach out to a wider mass, but changing the interface doesn’t help. Such features are limited to geeks only (and that too for experimental usage).


In short, #FAIL.
