Edward Snowden’s Curiosity

Edward Snowden has expressed puzzlement over the youth’s preference for livestreaming over professionally edited videos, questioning whether this was a sign of his aging.

What Happened: Snowden shared his thoughts on Twitter, expressing his bewilderment at why the younger generation would choose to watch a livestream with “tons of dead air and a streamer who looks bored out of their mind” over “tightly edited, produced videos that don’t waste the viewer’s time.” He ended his tweet with a self-reflective question: “What am I missing? Am I just old?”

In response to his own question about his age, Snowden humorously tweeted, “the consensus is that i am old. i guess i have to stream from a hot tub in penance. lo siento mucho.”

Snowden observed that when it came to livestreaming the “chat flies by at like 50 messages a second.” and asked how the young keep up with it.

Significance of Snowden’s Commentary

Why It Matters: The former defense contractor’s tweet comes at a time when Twitch is reportedly planning workforce reductions due to financial losses. Meanwhile, other platforms like X, as part of Elon Musk’s quest to create an “everything app”, are exploring livestreaming features, potentially intensifying competition in the digital streaming industry.

Snowden’s tweet also follows his recent commentary on the decline of the ‘American Century’ and his criticism of tech giants like Apple and Alphabet over privacy concerns.
