Russia's President goes on Twitter

Russia's President goes on Twitter
While visiting Twitter headquarters in Silicon Valley, Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev created his personal profile and tweeted his first message.

“Hello everyone! I'm on Twitter, and this is my first tweet,” the message said.

Minutes later he posted a picture with the view from his hotel room in San Francisco.

In a little less than an hour since the Russian president created his account, it gained around 2000 followers. The president’s Twitter is available both in Russian and English.

Dmitry Medvedev is the first Russian president to be so keen on internet technologies and to go online – he already has his personal blog, which can be found on the Kremlin website and here.
