Armenia Needs Serzh Sargsyan Twitter Account

Twitter saw 300% growth in sign-ups the next day and have seen steady growth in activity and high-profile Russian use one day after Russian President Dmitry Medvedev started an account at Twitter HQ.
I've been on Twitter for more than two years now, and much as I love this social network, it doesn't seem to be growing very much in Armenia.

There is hope, however - and I think I've found the solution: Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan should start a Twitter account. There, I said it.

Now, we know, that Sargsyan already has a Livejournal blog, even though its quite dead. Still, it means our President understands the need for being represented online, so why not suggest him to join Medvedev and launch a twitter account? This might actually work and just imagine all the ministerial subscriptions which will follow, headed by Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan.

PS: And opposition should follow suit too. Would be great to have First President Levon Ter-Petrossian on Twitter, and Robert Kocharian too. They could even continue their constant fights - but limiting themselves to 140 characters, instead of boring us with 10 page stories ending with moral tales about Yeghiazar Ayntapetsis and African Safaris.
