Twitter reacts to WikiLeaks’ NSA spy claims

24 Jun 2015

WikiLeaks has released a load of documents that it claims shows US surveillance of the last three French presidents, amongst other selected targets.

It’s a pretty astonishing story and one that will rumble on for some time to come.

Indeed, any revelation about the activities of the NSA – which are plentiful ever since Edward Snowden changed the ball game two years ago – sparks much discussion on social media.

And if it’s immediate discussion you want, then Twitter is your guy. Among different hashtags like #NSA, #France and #Franceleaks, plenty of entertainment and valid discussion has been on show.

Of course, not everybody is too concerned with allegations of NSA spying…
