Most African languages for the past decade and over of social media platform Twitter’s existence have been referred to as Indonesian in terms of translation.
That has changed with Twitter’s official recognition of Swahili as a language.
It has become the first African language to achieve that accomplishment.
However Swahili is yet to be added in the language settings of Twitter.
The network now recognizes Swahili words and offers translation of the widely spoken and written East and Southern African language.
