Throughout the 2016 US election and for the better part of this year, WikiLeaks sent private messages via Twitter to the US president's adult son Donald Trump Jr, according to newly leaked correspondence first reported by The Atlantic. Trump Jr only occasionally responded and apparently ceased all communication less than a month before the US election.

Attempting to figure out what's going on in Julian Assange's head is a daily struggle. After moving into the Ecuadorean embassy in London seven years ago to avoid extradition to Sweden on since-dropped sexual assault allegations, the 46-year-old has remained holed up there with Twitter as his main means of communication. From the embassy's confines, he's kept himself busy leaking a slew of hacked DNC emails, CIA exploits, and generally inserting himself into world events in which he plays no part.

Now, it looks like Assange is doubling down on his attempt to join the Trump clan.
