Rudy Giuliani's Twitter typo gives rise to anti-Trump site

Rudy Giuliani's Twitter typo gives rise to anti-Trump site

It was, decidedly, no such thing.

Instead, he said that "Twitter allowed someone to invade my text with a disgusting anti-President message". "Out of control!Supervision please?"

Rudy Giuliani, who also serves as a cybersecurity advisor to Trump, inadvertently created a URL in a November 30 tweet when he failed to put a space after "G-20." but before the word "in".

He had a limited amount of time to act (needing to go onstage for an improv show) but it took all of 15 minutes, he told the New York Times. The G-20 reference inadvertently created a URL, which was promptly purchased and redirected to a site that says: "Donald J. Trump is a traitor to our country".

It was the type of throwaway gag that entertains Twitter users for a few hours before forever fading from memory. Giuliani finally responded to the sneaky move on Tuesday - and he desperately needs a lesson on how website domains work. Was it a Twitter employee?

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

He continued: "Don't tell me they are not committed cardcarrying anti-Trumpers".

"Time Magazine also may fit that description", Giuliani concluded.

"Any suggestion that we artificially injected something into the user's account is false", the spokesperson said. On Friday, he tweeted "Kimim ° has f", prompting the Twitterverse to speculate on what he meant to type.

The tweet, and subsequent misunderstanding of what caused the anti-Trump message, is particularly embarrassing for Guiliani, who serves as one of the nation's top cybersecurity advisors.

Keep that in mind as we travel back to Friday, when Giuliani tweeted some complaints about Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

It's not uncommon for political figures to display a lack of understanding regarding the machinery of the internet.

It is not the first time that conservatives have accused Twitter of acting against them.
