Wikileaks FAILS to start Twitter bitchfight with Guardian hack

Accuses Snowden confidante of profiteering, met with bored silence

Security for virtualized datacentres

Wikileaks is engaged in a Twitter spat with Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald, accusing him of profiting from NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden's leaks to the paper.

Greenwald is planning a book on Snowden, the former NSA worker who leaked documents from the agency to newspaper and other outlets. There is also talk of a movie based on the proposed but as yet unwritten book, although no studio has announced a deal yet.

On Saturday, the Wikileaks Twitter account tweeted a link to an article about Hollywood interest in the book and accused Greenwald of "cashing in" on Snowden.

The organisation also tweeted that it was the only one that had the real story, because The Guardian had "abandoned" Snowden.

So far, Greenwald has not responded to Wikileaks' Twitter taunts on the blogging site, making the spat a bit one-sided. ®
