Julian Assange to Launch Social Network for Diplomats, Twofacebook

WikiLeaks Founder Plans ‘Portal of Deceit’

Moments after being released on bail, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was already making plans for his next venture, a social network for diplomats called Twofacebook.

Mr. Assange said he came up with the idea for the new site while combing through hundreds of thousands of pages of WikiLeaks documents: “I realized that diplomats didn’t have a way to reconnect with old colleagues so they could lie to them.”

Saying that he hopes to build the site into a “portal of deceit,” Mr. Assange said, “This will be a must-visit destination on the Internet for sworn enemies to friend each other.”

The WikiLeaks founder said that Twofacebook would also enable members of the diplomatic community to share information about music, movies and TV shows “that they say they like but actually detest.”

Additionally, he said he had high hopes for the site’s first online game, Harmville, in which diplomats can kill or maim each other’s sheep.

    Wasn’t Bill “I did not have sex with that women” Clinton also a man of the year?

    Hitler? Yup, Time Man of the Year in 1938. Stalin? 1939. Guiliani? 2001 W? 2004. Clinton 1992.

    This, on the other hand, is very funny! I would see Twofacebook useful to a lot of folks outside the diplomatic arena, too. ‘>D

    Isn’t there already a Twofacebook. I think they’re called “Internet Dating Services”. Especially that “have an affair” dating site (can’t remember the name, I think Spitzer/Parker should do a show on that one). Now thats teaching our kids some wonderful morals and values.
