‘Dead Man’s Switch?’ Mysterious Assange Tweet Sends Twitter Into a Frenzy
An odd, cryptic tweet by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange featuring some sort of code and a link to the video of a 2008 rap song has sent Twitter into speculation mode over its meaning.
The tweet, which remains Assange’s last entry as of 5pm GMT, includes a 60 character code composed of letters and digits, along with a link to M.I.A.’s Paper Planes, a song featuring the chorus “All I wanna do is (gunshot, gunshot, gunshot, gunshot) and (click, ka-ching) and take your money” and the lines “If you catch me at the border I got visas in my name” and “I’ve got more records than the KGB, So, uh, no funny business.”
The message has led to a flurry of speculation over what exactly Assange was trying to say. Was it an encryption key indicating that a fresh batch of WikiLeaks files was on the way? Or a code for a ‘dead man’s switch’ triggered to release its cache of ‘life insurance’ files in case the freedom of information activist was assassinated?
