Conspiracy theories claimed that Twitter may have shut down Assange page. But Gizmodo noted evidence points to Assange deleting it himself.

Twitter may have taken out Assange account as part of the social media platform’s recent cleanse of seditious posts, most of the far right.

Some speculated that it was a move to silence Assange ahead of a big emergence of WikiLeaks.
