WikiLeaks Tweet Revealed- Aaron Swartz Was an Ally & Possible Source of WikiLeaks

WikiLeaks Tweet Revealed- Aaron Swartz Was an Ally & Possible Source of WikiLeaks 

WikiLeaks, the organization who used to dig the truth and bring them in front, has disclosed a sensational matter while saying that the late internet activist and renowned hacker Aaron Swartz who committed suicide a few weeks ago was possibly an active worker and source for WikiLeaks

Over the weekend, in a series of tweets, WikiLeaks said that activist and hacker Swartz, who committed suicide earlier this month while awaiting trial on computer fraud charges, "assisted" the organization and "was in communication with Julian Assange, including during 2010 and 2011,"  

Unfortunately those tweets did not go so far as to name Swartz as a WikiLeaks source, only saying, "We have strong reasons to believe, but cannot prove, that" he was. 

WikiLeaks -globally famous for exposing classified classified and top secrete documents of several government said it decided to reveal these details in light of the US Secret Service's involvement in Swartz's  case. At the time of his death, Swartz was awaiting trial for allegedly harvesting millions of scholarly articles over the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's network. He was charged with computer fraud and other crimes in July 2011, and faced up to 35 years in prison. 
Although WikiLeaks doesn't elaborate on its decision, the organization has a policy of maintaining anonymity for its sources. "As far as we can ascertain, WikiLeaks has never revealed any of its sources," according to its website. "We cannot provide details about the security of our media organization or its anonymous drop box for sources because to do so would help those who would like to compromise the security of our organization and its sources."  But after these round of tweets we can say that Wikileaks may have broken its own rules of anonymity by doxxing (removing the anonymity) of Swartz as an ally and possible source.
