Mashable reports that "less than 30 minutes after sending his first tweet, Snowden had more than 56,000 followers..." by comparison, I've been tweeting since 2010 and am just shy of 2,000 followers. Sigh. What's next for the controversial American figure? Snapchat? Tinder? Tumblr?
On top of joining Twitter, Snowden has even enabled direct messaging, according to Buzzfeed—though, as of now, he hasn't responded to any DMs. For what it's worth, he hasn't responded to my awesome DMs either, but whatever it's not even a big deal.
