Bug Description

The Twitter stream is only showing English-language tweets. So, it should only be visible during English installs until a multi-language feed is available.

In my case I used to saw also Spanish tweets (e.g. NovatillaSku, Ubuntuzando and others), so maybe this resolution was not necessary.

You might be mixing up how it was a little earlier with what it's doing now :)

Originally, it was doing a search for #ubuntu. That gave us a really cool, wide range of tweets from all sorts of people. Unfortunately, the lack of moderation was really worrying, so that was replaced with a list of accounts that aren't likely to troll people. That list is managed over here: https://twitter.com/#!/hello_ubuntu/installer-slideshow
(One of those accounts is an account that retweets stuff, so when everything is live it'll look a little more exciting).

I hope to see it happen, but getting a diverse language selection inside that framework is going to be something of an operation.
