Twitter en Español: LACMA the First Museum to Offer Bilingual Tweets
We're a city of many languages, but so often our icons of art and culture communicate in English-only. Now the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is reaching out to their Spanish-speaking (and reading) visitors and members by providing Twitter posts en Español, making them--as far as they or we know--the first museum to do so, according to their blog, Unframed.They explain (in English):
@enLACMA, the first bilingual account we know of at a museum, will be manned daily by our own Marietta Torriente de León. It’s a translation of the @LACMA account and also a place—and person—for Spanish speakers to come to with questions and comments about the museum.
