I set the language to Spanish but I still obtain almost all tweets in English.

Also, it would be nice to have a "cancel" or "next" button instead of having to recharge the page to obtain a new tweet without submitting the current tweet.

Hmm, sounds like a bug. I'll check on it.

It looks like some of the tweets have their language flag incorrect. Not quite sure what we can do about that as that's what twitter classified them as given the user. Might be able to run some kind of language detector to fix things up a bit.

We have had a suggestion to add a category for incorrect languages. We may end up adding a new category.

Lindsey is also working on a script to go through the tweets and run some language detection software to automatically fix things. Hopefully we can get something like that soon.
