There is new activity on the Twitter account as of a few minutes ago. It's active, but until there is proof it's him, I won't post every Tweet here.

Edit: That would put these Tweets at just prior to 4:00 AM in Belarus.

"Chilean Foreign Ministry will continue to search for missing journalist Lira Lopez in Kharkiv
April 22, 2022, 04:17 /Moscow time/

The search for the missing journalist Gonzalo Liru Lopez in Kharkov continues.
This was announced on Friday, April 22, in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Chile. “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, through the Consular General Directorate and representative offices in Poland and Moscow, is taking all possible steps to establish the whereabouts and state of health of the Chilean Gonzalo Lira Lopez, with whom contact was lost in Ukraine,” - RIA Novosti was told in the Foreign Ministry.
On the eve of the Chilean Foreign Ministry reported that Lira Lopez, who criticized Kyiv, stopped communicating in Kharkov.
It is noted that relatives lost contact with him on April 15.
Lopez, shortly before his disappearance, wrote on Twitter that he could be detained by the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU).
On April 21, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, in her Telegram channel noted that the journalist was always in the thick of things, first in Kyiv, then in Kharkov, and “honestly and competently spoke about the background of the crisis ... with his video blogs, he told many in the West opened his eyes."

A Tweet rationalizing why he isn't posting audio (21 hours old) from the new realGonzaloLira01 Twitter account:



It's ridiculous. If he's worried about the "background noises picked up by the CIA", he can record a short voice message from under his bedsheets, while having the radio playing loud music in the next room.

It's 98% certain it's a fake account. Gonzalo would not let his family and friends in extreme fear, he would send a voice message.

By the way, a forum member on this thread asked me why I'd think that the Russians would see value in Gonzalo, enough to possibly swap him for some Ukrainian prisoner... Well, having listened to the message from M. Zakharova, we now know that the Russians indeed are/were quite appreciative of Gonzalo's honest journalism work.

So, if Gonzalo is still alive, which we have to hope he is, his Ukrainian captors could indeed exchange him for a Ukrainian POW. I mean, the Russians would apparently be willing to help Gonzalo recover his freedom, out of respect for his independent and honest job. So there's still a bit of hope.

it's also weird that he gets into the discussion with people about whether his account is real or not. Kind of a weird thing to do if you're real, because you'd just get bored and think of delivering proof at another time. Also, I I expect that first thing to do for him would be to get into a Chilean embassy and have them put everything on record about his situation, to have a political reassurance for his safety. Going secretly to Belarus and making pictures in a café sounds completely moronic to me, when he's assuming that he's still on the run from somebody. Wouldn't the Belarussian Gov't also have an incentive to protect him and make it official?
Staying in hiding outside of Ukraine doesn't seem rational, he's not some kind of super agent.

I'm not. Buying anything until he's stable, in front of a camera and regularly producing video.

John McAfee produced videos for year and years on the run. I'm sure Gonzalo is as smart as he was.

I hope I'm wrong, but i am willing to bet this is a psyop.

We need more than random Twitter posts to know one way or another.

Difference is John really knew his trade and Gonzalo is not a hacker.

Someone's an opportunist.

There's a good chance, I'm afraid to say, that whoever killed Lira was going to let it be known publicly- until suddenly all this became viral and any evidence would have looked very bad for Zelenskys regime and the affiliated Western glowie media creeps and so they have committed to radio silence.

This fake account is making hay in the absence of real news and I would have liked what it was saying had it gunned for the Daily Beast and Vasquez, Cirillo etc relentlessly.. but the CIA Hunter Biden larping is making it a little ridiculous.

It's a shame people get taken in.
It's a shame that social media turns everything into a circus.

My post had an inherent level of sarcasm.

I think Gonzalo is most likely dead or in a captured state...

But since i haven't seen any convincing video... Im holding out.

I'm sure IF *** he was killed there's. H
horrendous video of it...just like the guy that got stabbed in the face and beaten in the hallway. That's the fate these crazy sycophants seek to inflict on dissidents.

I hope I'm grossly wrong and everyone on here can make fun of how wrong i am. That's an easy internet shame I'd embrace.

I have tremendous respect for GL. I appreciate his comments and have been following since he was Coach Red Pill... But I would have bowed out to support the family.

Either way. Let's hold off till God avails more.
 
The way you write is unique. It’s like a signature. You can study it and determine punctuation and sentence structure and compare it to other samples to determine if something is real or a forgery. You can also take known writings and compare to anonymous writings and try to find if you can tie it back to a certain person. Having read some of CRP’s telegram chats at the start of the war, this new Twitter “feels” different. I doubt it’s the real deal.

True. A very minor example: The original @realgonzalolira account used the following 'forward slash' format:

Ukraine/Russia




This 'new' account uses a different format (with spaces):
BioLabs / Hunter


Also the new account is missing his liberal use of double/long dashes.

On their own not proof but another couple of indications @Lira01Real may be a fake.

I believe the Duran connection.

The fact he didn't get whacked is interesting... I have lots of and lots of questions.

He said he got picked up by the SBU on Friday april 15.

This is a big win.

Hope we get an after action report from him about this happened.

Let's continue to pray for him till this war is over.
