Snowden Plans Q&A

Posted: Updated:

If you've ever wanted to ask NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden a question, you might get your chance on Thursday, January 23, at 3 PM ET/12 PM Pacific. The man who revealed the startling revelations about the NSA's Prism program and cell phone metadata collection — and inspired a slew of security-focued apps and services — is lining up for his second official question and answer session.

Thursday's virtual town hall meeting is Snowden's second public Q&A, following one hosted by The Guardian and moderated by Glenn Greenwald last June. This time around Snowden will answer questions on freesnowden.is, a leading advocacy site for the whistleblower.

Anyone who wants to submit questions must ask them on Twitter starting Thursday using the hashtag #AskSnowden. Snowden's responses will be logged on the Free Snowden site.

Snowden is also expected to respond to President Obama's speech on NSA reforms last Friday, though not necessarily during the live chat session.
