Can you hear me now?— Edward Snowden (@Snowden) September 29, 2015
In response, ex-New York Gov. George Pataki called for Twitter to censor Snowden's tweets, because that's what great Americans do — suppress speech they don't like:
.@Twitter is a great American company that should not give a platform to terrorists or traitors - @Jack shutdown @Snowden today.— George E. Pataki (@GovernorPataki) September 29, 2015
Pataki, who is running for president as a Republican, is currently at 0.6 percent in the polls.
