Can I use one of the Xbee3 DIO pins to output a string

I am reading values from an accelerometer, and storing these into a variable in java. Can i then output these through one of the DIO pins on the xbee grove board to a MSP430 or can ints that are sent wirelessly only be accessed serially.

The DIO function of the XBee products is for triggering a Digital line either as an output high or low state. So I would not think of it as being used to send value data. I would expect you to use the UART if you want to send Ascii or Hex data to a device.
