Edward Snowden may have garnered himself 1.3 million followers during his first week on Twitter, but even instant celebrities make rookie mistakes. Snowden's? Forgetting to turn off email notifications. 47 GB of follow, favourite, retweet and DM emails later, we're pretty sure he learned his lesson.
At least he didn't have much to catch up on from those he's following.
I forgot to turn off notifications. Twitter sent me an email for each: Follow Favorite Retweet DM 47 gigs of notifications. #lessonlearned
