Here's a brief update on all of Guccifer 2.0's indications of activity in US timezones that have been discovered by independent analysts/researchers during the past two years:
Finally, a slightly off-topic "heads up" for those of you who have followed recent reporting on the DNC emails: Expect to see further details enter the public domain in the not-too-distant future.
March 3, 2019Last year, while distracted by having to deal with smears, lies and conspiracy theories, two things emerged in the public domain in relation to Guccifer 2.0 that, due to the commotion, I unfortunately missed.
One of these was evidence that further supported the premise of Guccifer 2.0 being active in the central (US) time zone (bringing us to 4 or 5 examples of indications in that timezone now depending on whether you count Twitter and WordPress activity separately).
The discovery (originally revealed by a third party researcher/analyst in August 2018) was recently covered in a blog post by Forensicator:
In addition to this, a study carried out last year on a corpus of Guccifer 2.0's text has apparently provided a strong indication that the persona was likely to be Russian in origin (through analyzing lexical errors with the aid of Google Translate).
In conjunction with other observations, this would seem to suggest that Guccifer 2.0 (or at least one of those behind the persona) may have been a Russian who had substantial capacity to speak English (based on his lack of struggling with syntax where Russians would typically struggle) but that struggled with correct translations for certain terms.

To everyone that has supported or contributed to independent efforts to investigate Guccifer 2.0 over the past two years, thank you.
Here's the year-end review...
