Attempts to access the page overnight were met with a “Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!” message. The site’s official account, meanwhile, stayed online, with several of its most recent posts soliciting donations.

— Julian Assange 🔹 (@JulianAssange) December 25, 2017

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.

Around half an hour after going back online, the newly restored account posted another donation solicitation, this time with a short video of an excited Corgi. Neither accounts have addressed the several hours of downtime. We’ve reached out to Twitter about the incident, but unsurprisingly have yet to hear back — Christmas morning and all.

Assange’s account was down long enough to draw a good deal speculation that it may have been pulled for a specific reason. CBS news reports that another unverified account claiming to be Assange popped up in his absence, suggesting the original had been pulled ahead of a blockbuster Wikileaks release. That one, however, has since been suspended by the service.

If it was, indeed, an imposter, it would hardly be the first time someone made waves pretending to be Assange on the social network. And, of course, this is hardly the first time a high profile political account disappeared from the site without explanation this year.

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

Instead, anyone trying to reach it gets this message:

Twitter uses seeking Julian Assange's official account early on December 25, 2017 saw this message TWITTER.COM
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.
