Activist publishes 11,000 Wikileaks Twitter direct messages

An activist has published 11,000 direct messages on Twitter between the Wikileaks account and a group of its supporters. The direct messages were published by Emma Best on her own website. Her Twitter account states that she is a journalist on the East Coast. Best has been critical of Wikileaks and has advocated for government transparency. Some of the direct messages were previously published, but this is the first time all of the direct messages have been posted.

The messages show that Wikileaks wanted the GOP to defeat Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential elections. "We believe it would be much better for the GOP to win," the Wikileaks account states to a supporter named "Emmy B" in one of the messages from 2015.

Why would they do that?

    Hopefully you're speaking tongue-in-cheek. I'll tell you, I love our FABULOUS chemical industry as much as anyone. But the only time I'm giving my tongue a workout like that is in the mouth of a GORGEOUS woman. A 10, somebody on a par with Ivanka. Can we call that teflon? Why not!

    is in the mouth of a GORGEOUS woman

    This is why I can steal your woman any time I like. It's not her mouth that I stick my tongue into!
