Twitter is aware that some translations aren’t perfect, and offers this note on their support pages.

Although Bing Translator relies on advanced translation software to provide Tweet translations, the results still vary and often fall below the accuracy and fluency of translations provided by a professional translator. For this reason, the original text is always displayed above its translation.
