Russian President Visits Cisco, Apple and Tweets

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 31 comments

Now international diplomatic matters can happen over Twitter.

The Russian president Dimitri Medvedev has just joined Twitter. Yes, he may be late to the party, but he picked a great time to start up his account as it was during his trip to San Francisco.

In fact, he started up his Twitter stream as part of his visit to Twitter, Apple, Cisco, Stanford University and even lunch with Barack Obama. Here are some of his tweets:

·      Silicon Valley's greatest asset is communication. People discuss their work not trifles. Russia would benefit from this kind of environment.

·      The government's task is to create job opportunities. We have the money now, but we don't have a Silicon Valley. We must spend wisely.

·      The decision of major American companies to come to Russia and invest shows that we can agree on more than just missiles.

Through Medvedev's stream, we get to see some inside pictures of him with Steve Jobs (where he picks up an iPhone 4) as well as lunch with the U.S. President at a burger joint.

    i am impressed buy this :) . just wish other leaders would come here to find out how America became so successful, perhaps they can follow and help bring less advanced or 3 world countries up to speed. perhaps they can help with solving the energy crisis by showing us how its done properly.

    America Successful ? hmm

    how about a US Army General getting fired ?
    i think Military coups in the US, specially there are various US army bases located out side the US and its out of control and reach of the government, who roles who ?
    within the coming 5 years things will become more clear..

    Apple adds another powerful nation's premier to its customer portfolio; in other news, Steve Jobs was reportedly seen with an ever-growing evil smirk.

    Eating at a burger joint? :) ) boy that so is not becoming of 2 presidents ... it's so populist that it hurts the brain. If the press wasn't there or pictures weren't take maybe, just maybe i'd take that as something that isn't image orientated .. but as i see it now, it has FAKE spelled all over it.

    In Russia, Steve Jobs would get arrested for being more popular than the president. Fix that, if you want to fix business in your country.

    Letting the Russian president that close to a live iGrenade was a very risky move... This could have started a war!
