Heh. There is nothing like Twitter to keep you entertained while waiting for news!

As Twitchy reported, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is set to speak outside of the Ecuadorian embassy in London today. He has been “under protection” of the embassy since June.

The U.K. Foreign Office believes that they have the right to arrest Assange once he steps outside.

And while waiting? Twitter users amuse themselves.

Ha! Here are some real photos and reports from the scene.

And, of course, the willfully ignorant treat him as a martyr.

Twitchy will monitor the situation and update with all developments.

Update:

No arrest so far. Some reaction from the Twittersphere.

But, of course!

And, sigh.
