WASHINGTON (AFP) - Twitter hopes to eventually find a way to launch a service in China but has no immediate plans in the country, chief executive Dick Costolo said Wednesday.

Costolo told the Code Conference that the messaging service is in the "very beginning stages of conversations about what it would look like or feel like," according to the online news site Re/code, which sponsored the event.

He did not elaborate on any plans, the report said.

Costolo told the conference that his recent visit to China allowed him to talk with Chinese companies that advertise on Twitter about ways they can work together.
