Twitter Announces Firehose Partnership With Yahoo Japan [washingtonpost.com]

Twitter has just announced a partnership with Yahoo Japan, according to a blog post on the company’s site.

As part of the partnership Twitter says that “Tweets will be integrated into various services on Yahoo Japan, beginning with real-time results pages. This partnership will allow Twitter content to reach even more users in Japan, one of our biggest international markets.”

This is a big deal because not only is there a huge Twitter userbase in Japan, but it is also the country that the service has worked most closely with since their inception.
