Many are curious as to why Hong Kong was Edward Snowden’s refuge of choice after blowing the whistle on the NSA’s surveillance operation.
And where are you going after you leak this huge NSA secret? Why, Hong Kong, of course! #snowden

Eager for smart analysis of Snowden's choice to hole up in Hong Kong. Being a non-fugitive, I'm not well-schooled in fugitiveness. But HK??

Who exactly is paying to put Edward Snowden up in a fancy hotel in Hong Kong? Is it the Guardian at the request of Glenn Greenwald.

Fascinating that Edward Snowden chose Hong Kong to go public as PRISM source, not Paris or London. Geopolitical calculus or closer to Hawaï?

Wow. Guardian says NSA whistleblower is in Hong Kong. Snowden: "All my options are bad… I could be rendered by the CIA."

Edward Snowden's decision to go to Hong Kong has made me start thinking about Canada's commitment to free speech (hint: it's not great).

RT @emilydparker: In describing decision to go to Hong Kong, Snowden says China is not enemy of United States

And some wonder if he is really there.
Hey morons maybe Snowden isn't in Hong Kong.

Bet #Snowden is not really in Hong Kong. Not to evade spooks, but other journalists!
