Medvedev says will use ideas received on Twitter

25 Nov


November 25, 2010 (KATAKAMI / RIA NOVOSTI) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev thanked Twitter users who send him proposals on various problems and said he will use some of them.

“I think I will use a number of those ideas in the address to the Federal Assembly,” Medvedev replied on Twitter to a user of the microblogging site who asked him whether the Russian leader reads the tweets he receives.

The technologically savvy Russian leader registered on Twitter in June during his visit to the United States. More than 127,000 people are currently following him on the micro-blogging site. The English version has more than 54,000 followers.

Last week Medvedev renamed his popular account on Twitter to make it more informal. The account’s new name is MedvedevRussia (MedvedevRussiaE) is the English version). (*)
