Cape Town -  "Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened."

This tweet by US President Donald Trump on Saturday has created a lot of excitement in the US with many hoping the opening of the long-secret files on the November 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy could lay to rest the many conspiracy theories around JFK's death. 

But some Tweeps had other ideas for what secrets the files, which are due for release on Thursday, may hold.

Some Twitter users led the hashtag #UnlikelyThingsIntheJfkFiles into a political and current affairs direction, while others thought they might find the answers to burning questions about pop culture.
