Two twits tweet:

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has accepted Arnold Schwarzenegger’s proposal to go skiing.

‘@Schwarzenegger: Thanks. We agreed – I remember. We’ll definitely find the time,’ Medvedev wrote on Twitter.

Action movie star Schwarzenegger, who on Monday stepped down as California governor, earlier used his Twitter account to invite the Russian leader to ski with him.

Medvedev, one of whose hobbies is mountain skiing, wished good luck and success in new undertakings to the ‘Governator’ on Monday.
