“In the coming months, Twitter will translate and recommend amazing tweets from people in other countries and cultures. There are epic tweets in other countries every day (Japan in particular),” said the billionaire who has unleashed a storm of change on the platform since acquiring it last year.
Tweets will be translated before being recommended, he said.
“Twitter’s next update will remember if you were on For You (i.e. recommended), following or list you created and will stop referring you to recommended tweets,” Musk said in another tweet.
Earlier this month, it announced several other updates, including the left-right swipe feature to switch between recommended and followed tweets, and a bookmark button. He had also confirmed that Twitter would launch the “long-form” tweet feature in February.
