Edward Snowden gets 47GB of Twitter notifications

New York: Edward Snowden may have found the excitement around his joining Twitter flattering, but that has actually left him flabbergasted.

Snowden has been left grappling with what to do with a whopping 47GB of emails he has received from Twitter as he forgot to disable email notifications.

As one could expect, Snowden was immediately inundated with followers, replies, favourites, DMs and re-tweets -- all of which came with individual alerts to the NSA whistleblower's email account.

For reference, Snowden currently has more than 1.26 million followers and his first tweet earlier this week has been 'favourited' 1,10,000 times with 1,20,000 re-tweets.
