According to Laura Martínez of Multichannel News, in early March the Spanish net quietly launched @Univision_News, an English-language Twitter feed for a new news website. It currently has over 4,100 followers. @UniNoticias has over 73,000.
On Feb. 26, the company also discreetely launched Univision Soccer, an “expansion” of “UnivisionFutbol.com’s 2010 World Cup coverage effort in English,” promising to bring top news for MLS, European Soccer and top Mexican and Latin American Leagues.
Why the change of heart? It may have to do with the 2010 Census numbers showing that more than 60% of the nation’s Hispanics are U.S.-born.
