Nach e seo Là Twitter na #Gàidhlig? A rèir @Twitter chan eil scoobaidh aca! Thought it was #GaelicTwitterDay – not that @Twitter would have have us believe!

‘S dòcha gur e Là Twitter na Haitian Creole, Là Twitter na h-Eadailtis no Là Twitter na Nirribhis. A bheil fios aig duine sam bith?

Twitter would have us believe we’re writing in Haitian Creole, Norwegian and Italian! I’m pretty sure the Gaelic language is not so similar. Does anyone know how  to get Twitter to change this? They don’t seem to care or want to listen.

French blog by @ABhuidheag on Là na #Gàidhlig

French blogger ‘Le Chardonneret’ (@ABhuidheag) has written up a blog post about “Journée touïtteur du #Gàidhlig”. I rather like that – and I now know how to write ‘Twitter’ in French!

Là na #Gàidhlig aims to go international this year – and this is a good start to meeting that objective!

Here’s an excerpt from the blog suggesting the use of Scottish Gaelic online and on social networks is impressive in comparison to the number of speakers:

La présence de cette langue en ligne (air loidhne), sur internet (air eadar-lìon) et sur les réseaux sociaux (air lìonraidhean sòisealta) est donc impressionnante quand on la compare à son nombre de locuteurs.

L’année dernière, la tendance #Gàidhlig a explosé.
