Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “‘All you had to do is let us know’: Telegram CEO Durov PURGES Snowden impersonator after NSA whistleblower’s Twitter tirade”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Telegram “knows” he doesn’t have an account, Snowden tweeted on Sunday, complaining about an impostor account named ‘Official_EdwardSnowden’ sharing “a swastika” to 80,000 followers. 

So:@Telegram knows the below account is an impersonator, and I don't have an account with them.But they let this guy continue to post insane garbage—as "Official_EdwardSnowden"—and even a swastika, which Telegram has served to over 80,000 views.Great job, guys. Just super. https://t.co/X6jke9Xea4pic.twitter.com/WYbpsVky8E

Snowden added that Telegram knew “ages ago” about the “scam-ring running this account,” having refused to respond to media coverage about it.

Don't tell me @telegram didn't know about the scam-ring running this account, either: they were contacted by the media about it ages ago, which even wrote a story about it. What did @Telegram do when asked for comment? They refused to even respond! https://t.co/fBQunr9mJD

Durov, who is apparently not in the habit of using Twitter – his most recent post on the platform had been in January – responded to Snowden’s complaints on Monday, noting that the imposter channel “is about a week old and never had a ‘verified’ mark.”
