Self-exiled former CIA computer specialist Edward Snowden excoriated Hillary Clinton in a tweet Wednesday, that distilled the controversy centered on her use of a private email server while secretary of state in 22 words.

Snowden tweeted:

Within a day, his message received more then 15,000 “likes” and was retweeted nearly 13,000 times.

Opinions of Snowden run high both pro and con. some call him a traitor, others a hero, and those core beliefs managed to stir up debate.

And even those who thought Snowden a traitor found agreement on this one.

But all-in-all, this pithy message said it best.

While employed as a private contractor for the U.S. government, Snowden copied and leaked classified information from the National Security Agency.

He also disclosed that the United States was engaging in widespread surveillance of foreign world leaders as well as collecting metadata of American telephone customers with the cooperation of telecommunication service providers.

He flew from Hawaii to Hong Kong, and eventually ended up in Russia where he remains to this day.
