"This is not a publicity stunt," he tweeted.

Gone Fishing

Hey, America. The man who wants to be your next president is missing — and there’ll be hell to pay if he doesn’t turn up soon.

That’s the gist of a series of recent tweets sent from the Twitter account of eccentric tech millionaire-turned-2020 presidential candidate John McAfee, who’s been running his campaign in exile since January to avoid charges of tax fraud in the U.S.

Twitter Threats

On Tuesday, McAfee’s campaign manager Rob Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Loggia-Ramirez sent several tweets from his boss’s account claiming he now has “good reason to suspect” that McAfee has been detained. 

And according to Loggia-Ramirez, McAfee’s continued MIA status could be very bad for… well, someone.

“If John misses his next check-in, events will be set into motion that I cannot prevent once they have begun,” he tweeted. “John has secreted data with individuals across the world. I know neither their identities or locations. They will release their payloads if John goes missing.”

Not What It Looks Like

Loggia-Ramirez didn’t elaborate on when that next check-in is supposed to happen, whose data this is, or what sort of repercussions might follow its release.

However, he did take the time to make sure one thing is crystal clear: “This is not a publicity stunt.”

Guess we’ll just have to wait to find out.
