Love him or hate him, Edward snowden has a reputation for the dramatic.

The NSA (National Security Agency) whistleblower now residing in Russia, has finally taken the plunge and joined Twitter under the username @snowden and in less than 2 days has amassed an audience of over 1.1 million followers.

His humour, which is in no way lost on us, is clearly shown by his opening tweet, which read ‘Can you hear me now?’

Followed by a post later that tickled us somewhat…

To add insult to injury, the only account he has chosen to follow is, yes you guessed it, the NSA! under their account @NSAGov.
