Julian Assange's official Twitter account not appearing

Julian Assange's official Twitter account not appearing

It's still not clear why Assange's account went away to begin with, though - as noted below - the nature of its non-appearance suggested at the time that it was a manual deletion rather than an account suspension.

The official WikiLeaks account still exists and last sent out a tweet on Saturday.

Others were hesitant to believe Assange is actually the one controlling his account upon its return, with many pointing out a decrease in followers.

Health officials expect Minnesota flu cases to rise
Lamont said the flu cases were seen as early as September, but confirmed cases have skyrocketed every day over the past 10 days. Officials with the South Dakota Department of Health say a Day County resident in their 70s has died from the flu.

It's still unclear what exactly happened to Assange's Twitter account, and it's absence prompted some to speculate that he was being silenced by the social media platform.

The big mystery may be that Assange (or whomever else has the keys to his account) accidentally clicked something and didn't realize it until later.

The Twitter account of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has re-appeared after mysteriously disappearing Monday morning. In the meantime, consider it an early Christmas present.

More hilariously, he urges them to come to the realization that he's actually not "their" president, but rather that of the rich. Chappelle went on to say that the Trump supporters he met seemed like "decent folk" but that he "felt sorry for them".

According to the Wayback Machine internet archive, Assange's most recent tweet is from Friday.

However, Assange's previous Tweets - and habit of posting personal information about individuals - might've caused him to run afoul of Twitter's regulations.

Assange has long used the social media site as a means to communicate Wikileaks' messaging as well as his own while he takes political asylum in the Ecuadorean embassy in London.
