The Intercept reports:

“The @Snowden handle had been taken by someone who hadn’t used it in three years. So Twitter was contacted, and agreed to turn it over to Snowden himself.”

“According to Snowden’s lawyer, Ben Wizner of the ACLU, Snowden himself will be controlling the account.”

    My neighbour had a classic car in his garage he hasn’t used in 3 years. I’m gonna go take it now just like Ed did with that twitter account that wasn’t his.

      A Twitter account isn’t your property. It, along with everything posted on the site, belongs to Twitter to do with as they please.

      Seriously? Common sense would suggest that Twitter own the handle seeing as they own the service and have final say (check terms and conditions). Your neighbour presumably bought and paid for the car or it was gifted to them therefore it is their property, not yours. Your comparison is ridiculous and makes me feel sorry for your neighbour.
