Auto-deleted or banned?

Regardless of the reason, the Twitter account of Julian Assange has disappeared:
The official Twitter account of controversial Wikileaks founder Julian Assange -- @JulianAssange -- isn't showing up.

Instead, anyone trying to reach it gets this message: Sorry that page doesn't exist.

It wasn't clear whether the account was suspended or deleted by Twitter or Assange himself -- or why or for how long. Twitter wasn't commenting.

The official Wikileaks Twitter account was still live but wasn't mentioning the Assange account.

An account purporting to be an alternative Assange account was claiming Twitter had deleted his official one ahead of a blockbuster story he's preparing to break. There was no confirmation that Assange was authoring that alternative account -- and that account has now been suspended by Twitter.
But did it do so of the account owner's volition or not? That is the question. The one thing that is clear is that Assange's account wasn't perma-suspended like mine. But as to whether it was Twitter or Assange who deleted the account, we can't know until one of them accepts or rejects responsibility. My assumption is that Assange deleted it himself, because Twitter seems to prefer the softer approach of permanent suspensions to outright bans.

The account is back up. But had no followers a few minutes ago. Now it's up to 3,500. No way to know if it's still him running it, but it's at the old name, and has similar (same?) content as before.

https://twitter.com/@JulianAssange now up to 4.5k followers.

Perhaps Assange's twitter account got hacked and taken down.
There are all sorts of people who do not want Assange to spread his messages.
On a related note, the account was taken down a few days after Assange encouraged donors to gift WikiLeaks in cryptocurrencies.

"An account purporting to be an alternative Assange account was claiming Twitter had deleted his official one ahead of a blockbuster story he's preparing to break."

I've been hearing/reading about some sort of "blockbuster story/reveal" that's supposed to have world-shattering consequences for a while now, from all sorts of sources.
I'm starting to think nothing of the sort will happen. I hope to be wrong, but I'll believe it when I see it.

Is Julian Assange Father Christmas?

1. Silver hair & beard.
2. Goes missing on Xmas Eve.
3. Brings great things to good boys & girls.
4. Has spent time above the arctic circle.

It's back, but something new... He's now following 24 accounts. If I'm recalling correctly, he never followed anyone before. Interesting to see who he's following -- The United Nations, the Pope, other similar entities.

Hmmmm...

And the new follows had me second guessing if the real Assange was back up.
You're right, he only followed WikiLeaks before hand.


He's following 25 now.

China Mission Geneva
Mission of China
Uk at UN
US Department of State
Pope Francis
etc.

Why the pope? Didn't think Assange was Catholic.

Now approaching 400k followers. Something fishy about all this.

Speculation is he's following people on Santa's naughty list based on the Santa/Wikileaks cartoon.

I guess even gab isn't immune, it had a pic of her diagnosis.

He's back up to over 600k followers now. It looks like he deactivated it and later reactivated it. Not sure why... maybe just some Twitter SJW fucking with him...

Blogger flyingtiger December 25, 2017 11:47 PM  

Maybe his new main squeeze, Pamela Anderson has turned off his twitter. It distracts him. She looks like the kind of a girl who demands attention.

Blogger Meng Greenleaf December 26, 2017 12:03 AM  

He should run for election.

I've deleted my comment @14 - after some thought, it was not just off-topic, but also quite moron1ic to think about it. Sorry for everyone.
