The key sentence from the Huffington post story: "A woman believed to be Chapman, an agent sent home to Russia in 2010 as part of the biggest spy swap since the Cold War, tweeted “Snowden, will you marry me?” from an unverified account on Wednesday." Unverified account being the key phrase.

@Ken- Diamond in the back could be on a Lincoln or Cadillac, the phrase refers to the shape of the rear windows which were reduced in size and reshaped-(as described in the song- like a diamond) by a very thick padded vinyl roof covering. The "TV antas in the back" were the antennae mounted for an actual TV. I've never been quite sure what the gangster lean is, though.
