  • U.S. Navy- Navy sends inadvertent tweet about Julian Assange and Assange replies

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

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 other is a request for donations.

The tweet was later deleted and the Navy later apologized for the mistake. Without a whistleblower, we may never know.

The account was wiped from Twitter sometime Christmas Eve leaving many to guess whether the social media company deleted his account before a supposed new blockbuster release or if Assange erased the account himself.

This would suggest that it was deleted on his end, rather than suspended by Twitter.

As of 10AM ET this morning, Assange's account is back up - though at present, his follower count has dipped precipitously, dropping below 10,000. In the meantime, consider it an early Christmas present.

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

While the account was offline, anyone who tried to reach Assange's page received an error message from Twitter. Assange can nearly certainly avail himself of several other social media accounts: @WikiLeaks, and those of the cat who keeps him company in his embassy exile, @EmbassyCat and on Instagram.

Assange is now living at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, which granted him political asylum in 2012.

Assange has been living in the Embassy of Ecuador in London, UK, since 2012.
