Got a question for Edward Snowden? He’ll be holding a Q&A this Thursday, from 3pm EST

Edward Snowden, the NSA contractor-turned-whistleblower who has been disclosing top secret information about government snooping to media outlets for the past six months, will be holding an official Q&A this coming Thursday, January 23, at 3PM EST (8pm GMT).

The news comes just a day after it was revealed that Snowden will be standing for student rector at the University of Glasgow, Scotland. This will be Snowden’s first proper Q&A since last June, and he will be answering queries on freesnowden.is, a support site run by The Courage Foundation.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

The session will run for an hour, with questions submitted by the public via Twitter using the #AskSnowden hashtag. His answers will appear later at freesnowden.is/asksnowden. Though it’s being billed as a “Live Q&A”, it’s not clear whether Snowden will be answering the questions in real-time via Twitter too.
