Giuliani says Twitter sabotaged his tweet. Actually, he did it himself

Giuliani says Twitter sabotaged his tweet. Actually, he did it himself

President Donald Trump took aim at Twitter himself in July when he complained about alleged "shadow banning" by the platform of Republicans.

Two days ago we did a story on a tweet that the President's attorney Rudy Giuliani had made, which allowed someone to play quite an interesting prank on both Giuliani and Mr. Trump.

Jason Velazquez knew it was an oops, but clicked on the link anyway, saw no one owned it, scooped it up for roughly $6, and used it to display a white sentence on a black background: "Donald J. Trump is a traitor to our country". "Rudy didn't separate g-20 from.in so ya boy bought the domain", that person said.

Instead of seeing the obvious answer, Giuliani is convinced that he is the latest target for a supposed anti-conservative bias on social media. We can laugh about "cybersecurity advisor" and "expert" Rudy Giuliani not understanding how top level domains and links work, but then we should be terrified to think that. who the hell is actually advising the administration on very serious issues regarding internet security, at a time when tons of entities, from lowly criminals to aggressive nationstates, are using the network to mount various attacks. The same thing-period no space-occurred later and it didn't happen.




With his tweet, Giuliani appeared to question why a link hadn't also been placed over the section "Helsinki.Either" ― where he'd further failed to leave a space.

After discovering the gaffe, Giuliani tweeted on Tuesday that he didn't mistype the tweet. But he tried to post a tweet with.rudygiuliani, for instance, it wouldn't create a link. "Twitter automatically creates a URL if the word that follows is a top-level domain, which in this case was ".in" which is the top-level domain for India. The first tweet references Mueller's recent filings against Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign boss, for lying (again) to the Special Counsel's Office.

In August, he accidentally wrote "hate 'me" rather than "hate 'em" leading several users to respond that they were happy to comply.
