Wikileaks founder Julian Assange personally entered the Twittersphere on Tuesday, launching a personal account and getting right to tweeting.

“Our publisher @JulianAssange has activated his personal account and made his first tweet today,” WikiLeaks tweeted out to its over 4 million followers.

Here is what Assange has tweeted thus far:

In January, Ecuador’s minister of foreign affairs, Guillaume Long, said that Assange could stay at the Ecuadorian embassy in London indefinitely.

However, the upcoming elections in Ecuador could go against Assange and his stay at the embassy as the main opposition party has vowed to force Assange to leave.

Guillermo Lasso of the rightwing Creo-Suma alliance said it was time for Assange to move on because his asylum was expensive and no longer justified.

“The Ecuadorian people have been paying a cost that we should not have to bear,” he said during an interview with the Guardian. “We will cordially ask Señor Assange to leave within 30 days of assuming a mandate.”

Assange has been holed up in the embassy for almost five years to avoid being extradited to Sweden, a move the WikiLeaks founder believed would ultimately have him end up in the U.S. to come under the law of Obama’s DOJ.

Assange’s internet connect was cut off by Ecuador during the presidential 2016 U.S. presidential election after concern was raised over WikiLeaks meddling in the election process after it released emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta.

Sources told WikiLeaks that it was pressure from then U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry that made the embassy sever the connection.

The State Department later denied the allegation.
