The WikiLeaks Twitter account sent out the following tweet: "Julian Assange's internet link has been intentionally severed by a state party. We have activated the appropriate contingency plans."

How the connectivity issue occurred has not been specified, but that didn't stop the conspiracy theories from erupting.

Some people immediately thought the Clinton campaign was responsible, as WikiLeaks released hundreds of incriminating emails from the DNC this summer as well as a recent release of Clinton campaign chair, John Podesta's emails.

Some tweets were a little more light hearted, offering advice. The always helpful VerizonSupport tried to lend a hand, but apparently they are a nine hour flight from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London where Assange has lived since 2012 while avoiding extradition.

The tweet came a few hours after three earlier cryptic tweets showed up on the WikiLeaks Twitter Account which started speculation that Assange was dead and the tweets were a "dead man's switch" to be triggered after his death.

Some went as far as to speculate that Pamela Anderson had poisoned him with a nice vegan lunch she personally delivered to him in a surprise visit Saturday in London. Anderson says she supports Assange and is worried about his health and family.
