So apparently Edward Snowden (and some other "celebs" and icons) were added to a group chat with teen girls on Twitter. The girls don't actually know
who he is at first. They just know he's "some white guy". Soon after introductions are out of the way, Snowden asks these girls where they get their
news from - the answer was Twitter (not surprising, but Yikes). The girls are under the impression that Snowden is " some white guy", and "a CIA
agent & a scammer". This is pure gold..
2016, here we are. Where some tweeners can get into a group chat with Edward Snowden and not even know who he is. I thought this was hilarious and
wanted to share on ATS of all places. That's it for Entertainment News, reporting live from Vermont, FamCore.. out. [screenshots of the twitter
convo below - my favorite are the last 2 ]
I think it must be nice, in some respects at least, for Mr Snowden to be in an Internet environment in which he is neither regarded as a folk hero,
or a bogeyman. Like any kind of fame, escape from it can be very relaxing, freeing. Having lived his life under a spotlight, and under significant
risk since his revelations about the state of liberty in the free world, I can see him being both perplexed by the idea that some simply do not care,
and at the same time relieved that the forum in which he is speaking in this instance, is not one in which he will be required to justify himself
before the participants, as he has been in so many other situations.
The teens' opinion on Trump was that he looks like a cheeto / a dried out orange with slits for eyes, and that his supporters are racists but that
the "Trump Franchise" means he can provide tons of jobs for voters.
Other than the cheeto/orange comment I was a bit disappointed. It sounds like they would be leaning towards the Donald because "he can give everyone
I have a feeling these girls are a fine example of the typical American teenager today. Completely out of touch with reality and how the world works

A Briton with a double bearded war axe is scarier than both. You only spot them when they want you to, and they kill without a sound, other than the
echo of steel on flesh. They do not run out of ammunition either.
Thank you FamCore, that right there was a good laugh. Although at a certain point I wasn't sure WHY i was laughing. I mean come on, they obviously
have enough information to call the man a scammer, but what on earth is this mans' scam?
