Russia turns to action hero for high-tech advice… and Twitter love.

For those of you who doubted Twitter’s power as a mass-communication tool, consider the recent exchanges between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Russian president Dmitry Medvedev. Arnie is visiting Russia ahead of plans to develop a flourishing high-tech industry similar to that of Silicon Valley in California.

How fitting then, that on arrival Arnie tweeted ‘Just landed in Moscow. Beautiful day. Can’t wait to see Pres Medvedev.’ before President Medvedev responded with ‘@Schwarzenegger, welcome to Moscow. Looking forward to meeting you and your delegation at @skolkovo.’

We think it’s kinda cute that an action hero and a world leader would tweet each other before meeting.
