“Tick Tock?” Julian Assange Sparks Speculation After Adding Hourglass To Twitter Name
Is WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange running out of time? Perhaps his next target is. The self-described Geopolitical analyst has sparked speculation after adding an hourglass to his Twitter name. Infowars Editor-at-Large Paul Joseph Watson was one of the first to spot the new addition.
Watson tweeted, “Julian Assange has added a sand timer to his Twitter name. Tick tock?”

The tweeted sparked much speculation as to what the hourglass could mean.
Assange no longer describes himself as a “political prisoner,” in his bio.

Some believe the hourglass could mean WikiLeaks is about to download on Hillary Clinton.

Does this mean Assange will drop the "Mother of all Bombs" on the Demoncrate Party/Killary Clinton and the like.

Chatter of exoneration but anything else saucy would be intriguing too.
— Warren Smith (@warrenksmith) January 8, 2018
I believe the implication is waiting on exoneration. Or a pardon.

Suspect if pardoned by President Donald J. Trump, British gov may still attempt to detain/arrest him.

One Twitter user asked if “Seth,” as in Seth Rich, the murdered DNC staffer, may have something to do with the hourglass.

Others noted the hourglass resembles the WikiLeaks logo.
Assange has sparked a lot of speculation lately, firing off a cryptic tweet resembling a hash key before east coasters rang in the new year.
Assange tweeted a set of numbers and letters with a YouTube video of “Paper Planes” by singer M.IA.
The song has the lyric “If you catch me at the border I got visas in my name.”

The WikiLeaks founder also made headlines when his Twitter account disappeared over Christmas.
Law & Crime reports:
An odd sequence of events happened this morning, and it all surrounds the twitter account of Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks. First, overnight, his official Twitter account disappeared on all social media platforms. It was reactivated this morning. It is unclear if this is something that Twitter did, or if Assange deleted his account himself. Assange’s twitter account reappeared and then tweeted this:
While it’s unclear what the hourglass means, one thing is for sure. Assange always has something up his sleeve. Stay tuned.
