National secrets whistleblower Ed Snowden began using his Twitter account Monday with the message: "Can you hear me now?"

He also followed the twitter account of the National Security Agency and they obligingly started following him on Twitter too.

Neil deGrasse Tyson, the famed astrophysicist, immediately followed and engaged Snowden in a pretty funny tweet exchange.

Snowden -- whose Twitter profile says "I used to work for the government. Now I work for the public -- is believed to be living in an undisclosed Russian location since being wanted by the United States government for his leaking of secrets.
