The event also included questions from Twitter users. Jacob Young, a software engineer and privacy advocate, was one of the lucky users who submitted a question and had it answered by Snowden during the event. Jacob joins the podcast to give his reaction to Snowden’s answer to his question and also shares his thoughts on mass surveillance, privacy and more.
