Wikileaks Threatens to Dox All Verified Twitter Users, Then Deletes the Tweet

Wikileaks has been openly cheering on Donald Trump lately, after putting up a facade of being "impartial" during the election even as they clearly pursued a vendetta and smear campaign against Hillary Clinton. For example:

I am asking the chairs of the House and Senate committees to investigate top secret intelligence shared with NBC prior to me seeing it.

But today Wikileaks crossed a big red line and woke up a lot of people to their true agenda: they posted a tweet calling for the doxing of all "verified" Twitter users.

We are thinking of making an online database with all "verified" twitter accounts & their family/job/financial/housing relationships.

That tweet doesn't look like a real embedded tweet because they've now deleted it, after a large number of Twitter users filed reports. Twitter's @safety account even subtweeted Wikileaks (and this may have been why it was deleted):

Posting another person’s private and confidential information is a violation of the Twitter Rules: https://t.co/NGx5hh2tTQ

But I got a screenshot before the tweet disappeared for good. Remember, they may have deleted it, but that doesn't mean they're not still planning to do it.

And as a closer, here's a little something to help you have a warm, safe feeling about the fast-approaching Trump Horror:

In two weeks Donald Trump will have unlimited access to the private information of every US citizen.
