Korean became the seventh Twitter language, joining English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish. Twitter announced the news in a post on the Twitter Blog, in Korean, appropriately. From the English translation:

Twitter use is growing in all corners of the world. In the past year, one of the fastest-growing countries for Twitter is South Korea. There are now 10 times as many Twitter users there than there were just a year ago.

As of today, Twitter will be even easier for Koreans to use. Among other updates, and Twitter’s mobile Web site are now translated into Korean.
