After live tweeting the third Democratic debate Saturday night, NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden will appear via video link as a featured speaker at a convention in February of New Hampshire libertarian activists.

Snowden, who has racked up more than a million Twitter followers, will participate in a 30-minute discussion as well as question-and-answer session at the New Hampshire Free State Project’s convention in Manchester, The Valley News first reported.

The Free State Project describes itself as an effort to recruit "liberty-loving people" to move to New Hampshire. The group says it is trying to recruit 20,000 people who agree that a government should act to protect people's rights.

Snowden leaked millions of documents about government surveillance in 2013.

He has been living in Russia under a grant of asylum.

He faces charges in the U.S. for leaking details of the once-secret program.
