Julian Assange's Twitter Account Again Available Hours After Being Deleted

Although it appears to have been just a couple of hours since the account went down, speculation about the account's mysterious disappearance are already doing the rounds on Twitter.

The first post following the hiatus was an animated depiction of Santa Claus presumably writing down WikiLeaks under the "Good" section of his "naughty list".

There's no mention of what might've happened to Assange's account on the Wikileaks account.

It's been a odd Christmas for media outlets who have been following Assange's social media posts, as his official Twitter account suddenly went off the air late Sunday night, on December 24, according to The Daily Beast.

The post was a quote from Assange himself, which read: "A knowledgeable public, is an empowered public, is a free public". There was no confirmation that Assange was authoring that alternative account - and that account has now been suspended by Twitter.

Assange joined Twitter in February this year and has been a fairly active user.

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

Who has the resources to hack him?

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is seen on the balcony of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, Britain, May 19, 2017.

"This morning, an inadvertent keystroke by an authorized user of the U.S. Navy Office of Information's Digitial Media Engagement Team caused the trending term "Julian Assange" to be tweeted from the Navy's official Twitter account", the tweet read.
