Twitter Japan Launches

Twitter Japan have launched, in partnership with Digital Garage. Basically, it’s Twitter in Japanese (logout and select Japanese in the dropdown in the top right if you’re curious), but with ads:

The partnership agreement we have with Digital Garage also includes some commercial experimentation in the Japanese market through it’s subsidiary, CGM Marketing, Inc. At launch, visitors to Twitter.jp will see media from two clients. One is a new book about Twitter being released in Japan, another is an automotive news service built on Twitter and sponsored by Toyota.

Speaking of Twitter, people who suddenly found their direct messages (being private between two Twitter users) available to the public, should blame GroupTweet according to TechCrunch. I’m glad I didn’t go with the story right away, when I saw user Orli getting her private tweets all out in the open.
