    Fugitive US intelligence worker Edward Snowden has signed up to Twitter from exile in Russia.

    His first tweet, “Can you hear me now?” was re-tweeted 25,000 times in an hour.

    He got 171 thousand followers in less than an hour but is following only one account himself – his former employer, the US National Security Agency.

    171,000 followers in less than an hour? That is more real followers than Howard and Beth have combined.

    He will be dead of a "heart attack or automobile accident" two years after Obama leaves. I'm surprised he hasn't had a CIA "accident" by now

    The U.S. governement is gonna kill this guy, he exposed a ton of sensitive things that got people directly or indirectly killed. They won't forget or forgive that. Look for the special ops to handle this issue

    Good luck with that.[​IMG]


    All Snowden did was expose constitutional violations.

    From wikipedia
    "In April 2015 the Henry Jackson Society, a British neoconservativethink tank, published a report claiming that Snowden's intelligence leaks negatively impacted Britain's ability to fight terrorism and organized crime"

    The dude did tons of harm. He leaked how we survey the enemy and listen causing them to change their habits
    He may not of given away the codes to our nuke program but he made us redo a lot of our techniques and that exposed people and cost tons of money

    He isn't a hero in my book

    I watched the recent documentary on him and it seems he only wanted to do the right thing.
    His twitter posts so far are pretty good

    He recently did Neil Degrasse Tyson's podcast. It's a 2 part-er, very good.
