Julian Assange Vanishes (Temporarily) From Twitter

UPDATE: Aaaand he’s back. See the comments.

CBS News reports:

The official Twitter account of controversial Wikileaks founder Julian Assange — @JulianAssange — isn’t showing up. 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.

    Sigh…only from Twitter?

      My thoughts exactly, if only he’d vanish from the planet.

    It’s a start.

  • liondon#iamnotatraitor

    Maybe Julian and Ol’Roy Moore got together to commiserate their losses

      But remember, liberals are like Nazis for wanting him to stfu.

    • pablo

      He’s hiding in the embassy because he doesn’t want to be extradited to the US. Neither woman wanted him charged with rape. They wanted him to take an test for STI’s, because in one case a condom broke, and in another case he refused to wear one.

    “Liberals are celebrating the fact that Julian Assange’s twitter account has disappeared.”

    Seriously, I’m not that invested in Julian Assange’s twitter account. I’d sooner celebrate a successful toenail clipping.

    • Todd20036

      If I were on Twitter, I’d tell Makada that Trump actually told the CDC that there were certain words he did not want to see in their reports.

      THAT is a 1st Amendment violation

  • Bambino

    So now we wait for the mole-rat to spot his own shadow to see he will resurface in 6 weeks?

  • AJ Drew

    Ah, Ecuador has shown the world how to get rid of an Internet-addicted houseguest who has WAY overstayed his welcome.

    ASSange gone? No mystery: It was Putin, with the polonium, in the tearoom.

      Seems like there is a new breed of “liberal” twitter personalities that have made a name for themselves by spouting wild assumptions and conspiracies

      • Ninja0980

        Yup, fancy that.

        • cleos_mom

          Whoever could have foreseen such a development?

    • Reality.Bites

      What judge has jurisdiction over him, hiding in an embassy?

  • Blake J Butler

    Maybe Patrick Bateman paid him a holiday visit and just disappeared ironically soon after.


  • Bambino
    • Reality.Bites

      Look at the photo. An obvious bot. Believe it or not, young hot women don’t spend their time online tweeting right-wing talking points.

      Don’t reply. Block. Seriously the LAST thing we need to be doing is helping them send out their message.

      • Bambino

        What the Google spam love to use.

  • greenmanTN

    Not exactly on point but, unlike Assange, at least it’s pretty…


    • AJ Drew

      Any of last night’s shrimp dish leftovers available? I’m imagining awesome omelette for lunch…

      • greenmanTN

        Actually my sister called and said “let’s do it tomorrow,” so I made a disgustingly rich (and very good) scalloped potatoes with ham and ate way too much of it. Shrimp is later today.

        • AJ Drew

          Did you tell her… “but, shrimp!” ah well, family. (I still vote for considering the omelette idea if there are any leftovers!)

    Thought it said : vanished from earth.
    Too bad.

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    A few wonder if it is the real Assange. Let’s encourage this train of thought.

    I’m waiting for the headline: “Manafort Vanishes”. Just saying.

    • gaycuckhubby

      He’s being monitored pretty closely. I would be very surprised of he tried to flee

      • Gregory In Seattle

        The question isn’t whether Manafort will flee, but how soon until

        Trump goons get him.

        • geoffalnutt

          Putin goons parked their yachts down there, near Mara lago, too. Wonder what’s up.

      • NedFlaherty

        Most likely outcome: Manafort’s relocation to Florida was approved by the judge, and now he’s moving there. One night around 3:30 a.m., he’ll hop a speedboat to the Russian yacht, and reach international waters just minutes later, on his way to retirement in a Russian flat, later moved to a prison cell.

    • JWC

      Not out of the realm of possibiity The Russian still has his yacht berthed in Miami …12 miles out and he is home free

  • Puckfair52

    He’s starting to look a little Fezziwig around the jowls!
    hope he spends the rest of his life looking over his shoulder

  • cleos_mom

    The Left loves silencing people they don’t agree with. Reminds me of how the Nazis silenced the Jews…

    — Collin Rugg (@CollinRugg) December 25, 2017

    Jews are so handy for liberal-baiting (or just about any baitee you can name), especially if you sprinkle in a soupcon of references to “zionists.”. They want the damn embassy in Jerusalem but despise most of the people who live there.

    Of course, anti-Semitism is the baked potato or little black dress of ideologies. You can dress it up or down and it never quite goes out of style.

  • tbj5

    “Liberals are Nazis” he says, while ignoring that there are literal Nazis on Twitter and doing nothing to oppose them.

    Totes not a troll.

    • Halou

      I saw his fans saying Assange set himself up on Gab, the go-to new social mefia site for the Nazis who were recently suspended from Twitter.

  • Nychta

    I think Assange did it himself. He was feeling a little lonely and isolated, and wanted to see if anyone would miss him.

    • Reality.Bites

      Then he should stand in the middle of 5 th Avenue.

  • JWC

    He has done enough damage Julian accept no cocktail from Russians

  • Charlie In SF

    If Soros and the Clintons are so powerful and nefarious, as the Right portrays them; why is this man still alive?

    • Reality.Bites

      Death rays don’t work through Embassy walls.

      • Bad Tom

        It’s the curtains.

        • Reality.Bites

          Are they still iron?

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      So much THIS^^^

      I love how gays are so powerful that me fucking my husband will somehow cause a tornado or earthquake. Clinton & Soros are so powerful, they can manipulate time and space…yet… we still have republicans, conservatives, religious nuts, etc. For all powerful beings, we sure do suck at using our abilities more effectively. /s

      • Reality.Bites

        It’s the Sunday brunches. Everything resets.

  • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

    Why does the left hate freedom of speech and love censorship?
    The Left loves silencing people they don’t agree with. Reminds me of how the Nazis silenced the Jews…

    Up is down, huh? Thank goodness the twitter trolls comments aren’t ‘evidence based’.

    • Halou

      When I see a half-naked emaciated Assange behind barbed wire with hundreds of other people I will accept that liberals are the same as Nazis. Until then, no.

    • Halou

      btw. You can’t say “evidence-based” any more, the pro-free speech crowd wont let you.

      • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

        The first two sentences were from the article and were right-wing nut jobs protesting the left, imagining that we want to censor Assange.

        My attempt at witty comment was to point out that it is of course not the left, but the Trump administration that is actively engaging in censorship, most recently, by the banned words the CDC can’t use, along with Trump’s constant vilification of a free press.

  • Paula

    I hope he vanishes….at least until he resurfaces after three or four days when the gasses in the body build up and he floats.

    • ScubaBearLA

      You all float down here, Julie-boy!

  • pch1013

    Is there still any difference between the “alt-right” and the far left?

    • Reality.Bites

      Yes. Now fuck off.

  • Gianni

    Would anyone really miss him if he disappeared permanently?

  • Richard B

    I am tired of him and wish he would disappear for good.

    • Reality.Bites

      Maybe Ecuador will move its UK embassy to Jerusalem with him in it.
