Though the source who revealed information about classified U.S. surveillance programs has revealed his name, what to call him remains a subject of hot debate. Politicians and pundits took to Twitter to weighed in on whether “leaker,” “whistleblower” or “traitor” was a more appropriate way to describe Edward Snowden.
