In the year 2008, the makers of the Twitter site have announced in one of their web log entries that the Twitter website is spanning in the region of the Asian continent specifically in the Japan area.
The Twitter website being an all-English website was able to penetrate non-English speaking territories because of its wide coverage. The Japanese people have been the first to encounter this milestone. The language barrier that supposed to be is the major problem in launching the Twitter site in the Japanese region has not been seen as a barrier at all. For the Japanese, being a large percentage users of the Twitter site, although the whole interface of the site is in English, the features that Twitter has can overcome this obstacle in language difference.
Surprisingly, fourteen days after the Twitter site was launched in the Japanese area, it continued to gain huge volume of followers mainly within the range of the young professionals and young adults. Now, as months have passed after its maiden launch, the Twitter in Japanese version has become the second most sought after Twitter sites.
The Twitter in Japanese version has continued to attract more and more potential members and users that made it possible for it to reach an all time high in page traffic. In addition, the Twitter Japanese website has been one of the few sites that have attained the highest page rank in less than a month after its launching on the Internet. This is truly one of the more interesting historical events in the arena of social networking.
