Wikileaks tweeted out a series of three short, confusing messages, each of three tweets contain a 64-character code.

In a rather bizarre turn of events, the Wikileaks official Twitter account posted a series of bizarre tweets:

pre-commitment 1: John Kerry
- WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) October 16, 2016

pre-commitment 2: Ecuador
- WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) October 16, 2016

pre-commitment 3: UK FCO
- WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) October 16, 2016

Nevertheless, the set of mysterious tweets from Wikileaks was later followed by another in which the group claimed the Assange's internet link had been 'intentionally severed by a state party'.

This led some to speculate whether the tweets were a 'dead man's switch', triggered in the event of Julian Assange's untimely end.

According to Gizmodo, such switches do exist (both mechanically and electronically) and many speculated that all 349 gigs of the heavily-encrypted 'Wikileaks insurance' from 2013 are intended for precisely that purpose.

However, in a much stranger turn out of events, some even suggested that he had been poisoned by Pamela Anderson.

The 'poisoning' rumors transpired after Anderson was spotted taking lunch to the Wikileaks founder on October 16th.

The former TV star and Playboy model was spotted carrying bags from Pret A Manger into the Ecuadorian embassy, where Assange is staying for four years now.

"I brought him a nice vegan lunch and some vegan snacks. He said I tortured him with bringing him vegan food," the 49-year-old animal rights activist said.

Meanwhile, Anderson told the Press Association on Saturday she feared for his wellbeing.

According to The Huffington Post, Assange is due to be interrogated over a sex allegation in Sweden, which he refutes.

He believes that if he goes to Sweden he will be handed over to the United States for questioning over the activities of WikiLeaks.

Earlier this month Assange said that he was "a bit pale'' after being asked how his health was after four years without sunlight.
