WikiLeaks, Julian Assange’s Official Account and Legal Team All LOCKED OUT of Twitter

The official WikiLeaks and Julian Assange defense Twitter accounts were locked and inaccessible for over 24 hours, according to their current editor-in-chief, Kristinn Hrafnsson.

The accounts belonging to WikiLeaks, WikiLeaks Task Force, Assange’s legal team, and Assange’s official defense team were locked for over 24 hours, Hrafnsson confirmed on Thursday.

Hrafnsson also stated that he believes WikiLeaks and the affiliated accounts are also being shadowbanned. The Daily Dot confirmed that “both @wikileaks and @wltaskforce were failing to appear in the platform’s ‘search all’ drop-down results.”

People associated with WikiLeaks have attempted to reach out to Twitter for an explanation, but they have not responded.

The Daily Dot contacted Twitter for comment. A representative told the Daily Dot that the company was “looking into it.”

The accounts were unlocked on Thursday evening.

Sources close to the administration have told The Gateway Pundit that there has been discussion about Assange being removed from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he has political asylum, before the new year. When questioned by a reporter about the White House’s position on Assange at a Christmas party, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said they had “no position.”
