Twitter goof snares Trump lawyer/cyber advisor Giuliani

Twitter goof snares Trump lawyer/cyber advisor Giuliani

Rudy Giuliani's tweet, with the link to the G-20.In domain.

Last week, Giuliani took to his Twitter account to decry special prosecutor Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election.

Rudy Giuliani is not just the personal lawyer for President Donald Trump.

Instead, he said that "Twitter allowed someone to invade my text with a disgusting anti-President message".

Seven-year-old YouTuber made £17.2m in one year
The third biggest earner on Forbes' list was sports entertainment group Dude Perfect , which made $20 million. Meanwhile, makeup guru Jeffree Star slid into fifth place with total earnings of $18 million for the year.

After discovering the gaffe, Giuliani tweeted on Tuesday that he didn't mistype the tweet. 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. The reason "Helsinki.Either" wasn't converted into a link is that.either is not a top-level domain name like.in is.

"Don't tell me they are not committed card carrying anti-Trumpers", added Giuliani - a cybersecurity advisor to Trump - while refusing to believe or acknowledge his own error. But Giuliani preserved it in amber by following up Tuesday with the baseless accusation against Twitter, which has often been the subject of bias complaints from Republicans.

Rather, Giuliani accidentally activated an automated Twitter feature that applies to everyone's tweets, whether they're liberal or conservative. In any case, a Twitter spokesperson said that it can't edit user's tweets, and "the accusation that we're artificially injecting something into a tweet is completely false". For Rudy Giuliani, the big issue is that there were zero. It's similar to.co.uk in the United Kingdom or.us in the United States. 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.

Unfortunately for Giuliani, a lack of spacing between his sentences meant that Twitter automatically detected the phrase G-20.In as a potentially valid web URL operated from India, and turned it into a link. Others took note, per the Post, including Alyssa Milano and former Mexican president Vicente Fox, who tweeted "whoever is behind the g-20.in, is a godd-- genius".
