Edward Snowden infamously leaked classified information about the NSA in 2013, revealing mass documents on government secrecy and surveillance. His efforts sparked new debates on information privacy and have branded him as both a hero and a traitor.
Jack Dorsey, a co-founder of Twitter, wasted no time in giving Snowden a personal welcome to the site.
Despite the fun and games, however, Snowden remains a subject of intense controversy around the world. After bringing the NSA secrets to Hong Kong, he fled Russia, where he is now a temporary resident. He continues to travel as an event speaker, and works as the director of the Freedom of the Press Foundation.
When his Russian residency expires in two years, he will again be in a state of limbo -- but fear not, now you can always track him down on Twitter.
