Giuliani Mocked After Response to Twitter Prank Shows Lack of Technical Knowledge

A typographical error in a tweet written by President Donald Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani has linked to an anti-Trump prank. Giuliani’s response to the prank, however, showed a profound misunderstanding of basic internet functionality. Rudy Giuliani, who also serves as a cybersecurity advisor to Trump, inadvertently created a URL in a Nov. 30 tweet when he failed to put a space after “G-20.” but before the word “in.” Because “.in” is the internet domain extension for sites in India, Twitter interpreted it as a website, and created a link. Mueller filed an indictment just as the President left for https://t.co/8ZNrQ6X29a July he indicted the Russians who will never come here just before he left for Helsinki.Either could have been done earlier or later. Out of control!Supervision please? Rudy Giuliani wrote Tuesday that Twitter had “allowed someone to invade my text with a disgusting anti-President message.” He accused Twitter of purposely planting the link, on the grounds that he made a similar typo in the same tweet when he wrote, “Helsinki.Either” but that instance did not create a link. The same thing-period no space-occurred later and it didn’t happen. Don’t tell me they are not committed cardcarrying anti-Trumpers. Time Magazine also may fit that description. FAIRNESS PLEASE — Rudy Giuliani (@RudyGiuliani) December 5, 2018 This did not create a link because “.either” is not a domain extension.
