Text size Aa Aa

Fugitive US intelligence worker Edward Snowden has signed up to Twitter from exile in Russia.

His first tweet, “Can you hear me now?” was re-tweeted 25,000 times in an hour.

He got 171 thousand followers in less than an hour but is following only one account himself – his former employer, the US National Security Agendy.
