NEW YORK: Looks like Edward Snowden’s excitement of joining Twitter just got lowered after he received 47 GB of notification from the micro-blogging site unknowingly.
The 32-year-old NSA whistleblower forgot to check his notification settings, as he was unaware that Twitter sends e-mail notifications for pretty much every social interaction, reports The Verge.
Snowden, who got 1.19 million followers within 27 hours of joining the social networking site, tweeted, “Whoopsies. I forgot to turn off notifications. Twitter sent me an email for each: Follow, Favorite, Retweet, DM 47 gigs of notifications. #lessonlearned”
