Christmas Mystery: Where is Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange?

The Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has apparently deleted his Twitter account. @JulianAssange, suddenly went dark between 12-1am on Christmas Eve, sending social media into a frenzy speculations.

Gizmodo website noted that the leader of disgraced transparency organization had not tweeted since Friday. The Internet Archive have been preserving snapshots of Assange’s twitter account once every hour since mid-September.


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.

The official account of Wikileaks itself remains online and has commented on the disappearance of its founder: “@JulianAssange physical situation at the embassy remains unaltered”
