Can you hear me now?

The funniest thing in the whole thing is that Snowden is only following one account on Twitter and that belongs to the NSA @NSAGov. Yes, he’s following the official account for the National Security Agency/Central Security Service.
The NSA has about 103k followers while Snowden is already winning with 930k followers.
Snowden, famously known for leaking secret documents on how the NSA and other governments from around the world are spying on their citizens is currently living in Russia and wanted by the U.S. security agencies for exposing the government’s PRISM surveillance programme.
