Bing Translator Twitter For Android

Twitter is already making using of Bing Translator in their Windows Phone app to allow users to translate tweets from other languages to English. Now, Twitter is trying to expand this feature to their Android app. CNET today reported that some users are already starting to see this feature in their Android app. As you can see in the image above, a Tweet from Dutch language was presented in English using Bing. It is a cool feature that will break down the language barrier in the Twitter world. I hope Twitter expands this feature to all their clients including the web. Twitter declined to comment for this story.

    i wonder if this is because bing translator is cheaper to twitter or because of its increased accuracy. either way, companies appear to be more comfortable pissing off google…and that always gives me a little joy :)
