Medvedev to Use Twitter

President Dmitry Medvedev plans to set up his own microblog on Twitter, Interfax reported Wednesday.

His office has sent an official request to Twitter to remove a fake account set up in his name, Interfax said, citing the Kremlin’s press service.

Medvedev already keeps a LiveJournal blog, which Russians have used to appeal to him about various problems. 
Twitter, which allows users to type up to 160 characters in a single post, is a favorite among some Russian politicians. Dmitry Rogozin, Russia's envoy to NATO, is a frequent Twitter user.
