Schwarzenegger is leading a delegation of top Silicon Valley executives and venture capitalists to Russia to discuss investment opportunities in Russia's high-tech sector. The trip includes a stop at Skolkovo, the site of the high-tech research hub Russia is creating near Moscow.
The center has been dubbed Russia's Silicon Valley and Medvedev is keen to bring in U.S. know-how to spark the project.
He has made modernization the center of his economic policy agenda and visited Silicon Valley during his visit to the United States in June.
The president also met the California governor during the trip.
As well as exchanging tweets, the president and the governor started following each other on Twitter.
