President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) opened a new twitter account Saturday during a visit to micro-messaging
service Twitter Inc. during a stopover in San Francisco on her way home from a four-country tour of Central America.
The visit was one of a few activities planned by Tsai while in the San Francisco area to promote her government’s Asian Silicon Valley plan and attract talent from Silicon Valley to Taiwan.
At Twitter headquarters, she met with Twitter General Counsel Vijaya Gadde, but CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey was not present, according to a Reuters report that cited a source at the meeting.
The president activated a new Twitter account in English during her visit, after already having a Chinese language account that she has not used in a few years, Democratic Progressive Party Legislator Yao Wen-chih (姚文智) said. [FULL STORY]
