It wasn't clear whether Twitter suspended Assange's account or whether the serial leaker deleted it himself.
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.
While the account was offline, anyone who tried to reach Assange's page received an error message from Twitter. He faces rape allegations in Sweden, which he denies, and is seeking asylum as he believes that if he leaves the embassy he will be extradited to the US over WikiLeaks' publications. Assange can nearly certainly avail himself of several other social media accounts: @WikiLeaks, and those of the cat who keeps him company in his embassy exile, @EmbassyCat and on Instagram.
"Those with secrets want him alive, if he dies the real dirt is released".
Others, however, were more buoyant following Assange's online disappearance.
Another added: "In less than 24 hours the internet is about go absolutely insane if Julian Assange doesn't show proof of life".
A "This wasn't on my Christmas list, but I'll take it", said another. The platform has recently had a crackdown on prominent Twitter users overstepping the lines and violating Twitter's terms of service, which has seen many prominent alt-right accounts suspended.
Neither Assange and Wikileaks, nor Twitter have commented on the account's temporary deletion.
