NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has joined Twitter.
You can follow him at @Snowden, where he describes himself like this:
I used to work for the government. Now I work for the public. Director at @FreedomofPress.
But don’t be too upset if he doesn’t follow you back. The 32-year-old who leaked confidential details of how governments and intelligence agencies around the world are spying on companies and members of the public, seems to be a bit choosy.
In fact, at the time of writing, he is only following one Twitter account.
Can you guess who?
It’s @NSAGov, the official account for the National Security Agency.
Edward Snowden has only had a Twitter presence for a few hours, but already has close to 750,000 followers. The NSA, meanwhile, is proving to be somewhat less popular – with just over 95,000 followers.
