National secrets whistleblower Ed Snowden began using his Twitter account Monday with the message: "Can you hear me now?"
Can you hear me now?-- Edward Snowden (@Snowden) September 29, 2015
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.
Ed @Snowden, If you visit Mars, I'd bet any life forms there will greet you with a sip of that water -- and a tourist visa.-- Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) September 29, 2015
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.
