Russia’s President Dmitry Medvedev recently hit over 77,000 Twitter followers in both English and Russian versions of the social networking site. A slow start in comparison to President Obama’s launch of the whitehouse Twitter channel, but nonetheless significant.
After his June 23 visit to Silicon valley, the Russian head of state has made quite a splash with his social networking.
