On 9/1 a twitter user @Dusky_Wireworm identifying himself as "Cole Optera" posted two numerical strings to twitter, they are:

  • 22578422644012261167226427032725833040110317701105721111831812181501222128512291071...

It has since been discovered that:

  • The user stated thier home page as [1] which is a page on the "dusky wireworm" beetle
    • This creature, Agriotes obscurus, is a member of the family Elateridae which are commonly known as "click beetles" or "Skipjacks"
      • Skipjacks is also the name of a cryptographic cipher which has led some hunters to believe that the tweets are cipher text of some kind
    • "Agriotes" is an anagram for "riot sage" the source of an earlier clue
  • The user updated their location and bio:
    • Location San Francisco, Denver...
    • Bio Found out. Might have to flap my wings and fly away soon.
      • perhaps he is in denver about to fly somewhere else?
    • 9/5 Noticed Bio is now: Taking off soon.


  • Based on post by @nxthompson we have details on some flights in past 2 years. Below they have been matched to numbers from above.
