So on Saturday, this exchange happened on Twitter:
Oddly enough, Greenwald flacked for Snowden in response to the accusation that he flacks for Snowden. His predictably dickish reply to Daniel Serwer is only made worse when presented alongside Serwer’s accomplishments.
Meanwhile, Greenwald’s effusive praise for Snowden’s accomplishments inspired me to launch a hashtag: #GreenwaldSnowdenBrags, which trended for most of Saturday afternoon.
Edward Snowden has done more for the entire universe in the last 2 months than everyone else combined has done for it #GreenwaldSnowdenBrags
