Kim recently missed the celebration of his grandfather’s birthday on April 15, which raised speculation about his well-being. He had been seen four days before that at a government meeting.
Gathering intelligence out of North Korea is notoriously difficult — one of the most challenging targets for US intelligence.
North Korea tightly controls any information surrounding its leader, who is treated almost like a deity within the country. His absences from official state media often spark speculation and rumors about his health.
North Korea has no free press and is often a black hole when it comes to the country’s leadership. Analysts are heavily reliant on scanning state media dispatches and watching propaganda videos for any semblance of a clue.
This dude has some more juicy information about Kim Jong- Un. He doesn’t have a blue check but that doesn’t matter cause Twitter’s verification process is so dumb that it doesn’t matter. It’s literally a joke. Actually most social media companies are but that’s another blog post for another time. By the way, OJ Simpson isn’t verified because Twitter and social media have their heads so far up their asses that’s unbelievable. All these social media companies are run by people who make Kim Jong Un look fair in comparison. But back to the guys tweets:
Regarding claims about Kim Jong Un hospitalization, I've heard several rumors:
– Kim recovering from failed heart surgery, foreign doctors flew in to help (Feb.)
– Kim recovering from brain problems, in coma (on Sat.)
– Kim currently recovering from ankle problems (Yesterday)

I guess we’ll wait and see but I bet Kim is mad he’s missing the Jordan documentary.
