Rudy Giuliani claims his Twitter account was invaded

Adjust Comment Print

On Friday, Giuliani took to Twitter to rail against Robert Mueller in a five-sentence tweet.

Giuliani, who is one of President Donald Trump's lawyers battling the Mueller investigation, accidentally tweeted the random hyperlink "G-20.in" by not putting a space after a period.

Giuliani is referring to the fact that if you go to the website "G-20.in", you will see the text "Donald J. Trump is a traitor to our country".

For the low price of about $6, Giuliani's tweet now links to a simple website that bears the blunt anti-Trump text. 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.

Microsoft tops Apple as world's most valuable company
Since stock prices continue to fluctuate, Microsoft and Apple are still vying for the title of being the most valuable US company. Apple and Microsoft have one of the most storied rivalries in Silicon Valley, one that goes back to the mid-1970s.

It all started around 6 p.m. Friday, when Velazquez came across the random hyperlink in Giuliani's tweet.

Possibly trying to get the most out of his 280 characters or maybe just unfamiliar with phone keyboards, he emitted the spaces between the periods and the first letter of the following sentence. He was referring to a November 30 tweet in which Giuliani - by failing to put a space after a period, and starting the next sentence with the word "In" - had inadvertently created a hyperlink. "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. But he tried to post a tweet with.rudygiuliani, for instance, it wouldn't create a link. "Don't tell me they are not committed cardcarrying anti-Trumpers".

Giuliani was immediately roasted by the internet for what one Twitter user described as "turning a typo into a full on conspiracy theory".

Giuliani has also made several gaffes on Twitter in recent days. There, you can find many, many articles about Mueller's Russian Federation investigation and the Trump-related discoveries thereof.
