Is Julian Assange interfering in US election
When Ecuador cut Julian Assange's internet at its London embassy, something unexpected happened.
The Wikileaks Twitter account, which had previously been commenting on its release of internal US Democrat party emails, instead began tweeting what appeared to be computer code.
The three tweets accompanied by the words John Kerry, UK FCO (Foreign Office) and Ecuador led to speculation pandora ringe they could be part of a "dead man's switch": an automated release of information triggered if someone did not regularly "check in" to prove they were alive.

Of course nothing had happened to Mr Assange, he had just been disconnected.
'Insurance file'It took several hours before the Wikileaks Twitter account was running again. By that time someone else in another location it isn't known who had taken real pandora charms over, says Dr Einar Thorsen from Bournemouth University.
He believes the automated Twitter messages could relate to Mr Assange's "insurance file" said to contain information more damaging than anything yet released and automatically made public were anything to happen to him.
"You or I could download the file but without the code it would just be a lot of data that we couldn't bracelet with charms pandora access," he said.
Putin's pawn?Mr Assange fears for his future.
He sought refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy in 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden over sex assault allegations that he says are a US plot to jail him for leaking US military and diplomatic files.
But the war of words has escalated dramatically this month.
Wikileaks has since found itself denying allegations that Mr Assange received money from the Russian government and attempted to groom full pandora charm bracelets a child online. The latter claim appeared on the US blog the Daily Kos.
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton has found herself denying claims that appeared on a right wing blog that she once said of Mr Assange: "Can't we just drone this guy?"
"It would have been a joke, if it had been said, but I don't recall that," Mrs Clinton said, Politico reported.
"Does Wikileaks have a beef with Clinton? Yes they probably do," says Dr Thorsen, referring to the drone comment. "Is there a concerted effort to smear Assange? Yes absolutely."
Pandora's boxBut he and other observers say it is still unlikely Mr Assange is deliberately trying to skew the US election.
"Julian said that choosing between Trump and Clinton is like choosing between gonorrhoea and syphilis," his former colleague and partner Sarah Harrison told London's Evening Standard newspaper last month.
"He has always said that Wikileaks is just a tool, it's neutral, Assange is anti power. He's an anarchist in the pure sense, someone who wants self determination for everybody," says Sean Dodson from Leeds Beckett University.
"It's Pandora's box, that's what makes it so powerful.
There are dangerous forces in that box and Assange couldn't leave it alone."
The resulting impact has been felt far and wide, from the Arab Spring to Brexit and the rise of Mr Trump, Mr Dodson says.
Wikileaks revelations of corruption contributed to the overthrow of Tunisia's dictator, sparking a wave of unrest in the Middle East, and the atmosphere of cynicism has since only grown, he says particularly among the young.
