  • What Happened to Julian Assange

But his account reappeared shortly afterwards.

It is still unclear whether the account has been suspended by Twitter or if Assange himself deleted it.

Then at 1.5am (AEDT), he popped up again with a tweet showing a cartoon of Santa making a Wikileaks "good or bad" list.

Wikileaks reposted the Navy tweet, saying, "Despite some oddities from the US Navy and Twitter today and increased physical surveillance @JulianAssange's physical situation at the embassy remains unaltered - confined without charge in violation of two United Nations rulings requiring the UK to set him free".

Neither Twitter or Mr. Assnage have offered an official explanation for the deleted account.

However, some users speculated that Assange was taken out by Twitter as part of the social media platform's recent purge of inflammatory posters, many on the far right, the report added.

Assange has been holed up at the Ecuadorean embassy in London since 2012, when he sought refuge there to avoid extradition to Sweden on rape charges, which were eventually dropped.

Who has the resources to hack him?

This is all the more puzzling since the main Wikileaks Twitter account were up, as usual, having new posts since Friday, Dec. 22. While some of Assange's die-hard supporters are outraged by what they consider to be Twitter's censorship of free speech, others are celebrating the account's disappearance.

Do i think Julian Assange is truly gone from twitter? No.
