NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden indicators up for Twitter
NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden lately talked with Neil deGrasse Tyson about the potential for signing up for Twitter and becoming a member of the social web, and he simply made good on his phrase. Comply with @Snowden and you will get insights from the famed/infamous leaker himself, somewhat than via second-hand podcasts and shows. He hasn’t stated a lot but, however he is already teasing “secret tasks” on the Freedom of the Press Basis (which advocates for transparency journalism) and stressing that he sees himself as a “citizen with a voice,” not a hero for the professional-privateness crowd.
Will you see any main revelations on Twitter? In all probability not — the NSA documentation that Snowden obtained in 2013 is already within the palms of journalists, and one hundred forty characters does not depart a variety of room for giant scoops. Nonetheless, it is a uncommon probability at seeing Snowden’s considering on a day-to-day foundation, and a reminder that there is finally a human being liable for all these leaks.
