Representatives of the micro blogging site Twitter told Russian bloggers at a meeting in San-Francisco that a Russian-language interface will be launched, without specifying when, a Russian blogger said on Tuesday.
Twitter is a global service, so creating a Russian interface is naturally among our development plans, one of the Twitter representatives said.
The company also said it had plans to open an office in Asia.
A recent survey, conducted by Russia's Kommersant publishing house and the comScore researcher, placed Twitter fifth in its rating of resources with the fastest growing Russian audience.
According to the survey, the Russian Twitter audience increased six-fold, to 1.78 million users per month, in the period July 2009 - July 2010.
The website's growing popularity among Russians may be due to President Dmitry Medvedev, who opened a Twitter account during his visit to the company's headquarters in Silicon Valley in June. He is among Russia's most popular Twitter users, with more than 90,000 followers, and his example has inspired many Russian officials to create their own Twitter accounts.
