On Tuesday, former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden joined Twitter.
24 hours later, Snowden has already amassed more than one million followers.
In his first tweet on Tuesday, Snowden tweeted from his verified account: “Can you hear me now?”
Can you hear me now?

Snowden has also made a statement of sorts by his choice of who to follow on Twitter. So far, he’s only following one other Twitter account — the NSA.
For those sceptical that it’s truly Snowden, The Intercept reports Snowden is controlling the verified account himself.
The former government contractor, who gained fame and notoriety after exposing a trove of classified national-security documents more than two years ago, is living in Russia.
