Edward Snowden gets marriage proposal via Twitter
Moscow: A tabloid says Vladimir Putin is Russia's most eligible bachelor, but the president may have competition from an American half his age: Edward Snowden, the former US spy agency contractor believed to be holed up at a Moscow airport.
30-year-old Snowden has received a marriage proposal of sorts in a tweet allegedly from Anna Chapman, the glamorous redhead who was one of 10 Russian agents arrested in the United States and deported in a Cold war-style spy swap in 2010.
"Snowden, will you marry me?!" a posting on a Twitter account bearing Chapman's name and photograph said late on Wednesday.
After a few hours with no reply, a second tweet appeared.
