Rudy Giuliani Doesn't Seem to Know How the Internet Works

Trump’s Cybersecurity Advisor Thinks He’s Being Hacked Because He Can’t Type

Mr Giuliani left out a space between a full stop and the following word within a tweet, which caused the text to become a link. 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".

"And.as basically anyone who has even the most rudimentary understanding of the internet (clearly not including cybersecurity expert Rudy Giuliani), the reason there is no link for that is because ".either" is not (yet) a top level domain, and thus Twitter's systems don't see it as a link and don't automatically link it. "Rudy didn't separate g-20 from.in so ya boy bought the domain", that person said.

Legal eagles agree that Mueller's investigation looks to be entering the final phase, and on social media, panic has well and truly set in.

Giuliani suggested without evidence that Twitter may have been involved in linking his tweet to the apparent anti-Trump website. So when Giuliani neglected to put a space when writing G-20.In, a hyperlink was generated.

At most, Velazquez thought his stunt would get a "few hundred retweets" and then be absorbed into the Twittersphere, but by early Wednesday morning, Giuliani's tweet containing the link had about 45,000 likes and almost 17,000 retweets.

Giuliani's Twitter typo used to abuse President Trump

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

As to Giuliani's argument that the second "period no space" instance in his original tweet didn't create a similar link, that's because Helsinki.Either, so far, is not a working domain. CNET rounds up some of the tweeted replies to Giuliani in that vein (read them here), like this one: "Did you try unplugging it then plugging it back in?"

Many were eager to point out the accusation's flaws, drawing attention to Giuliani's cybersecurity background.

While he isn't sure exactly what prompted Giuliani to defend himself, Velazquez said he saw the new tweet was shared around the same time the news broke that Mueller had recommended former national security adviser Michael Flynn serve no prison time. To prevent that from happening, Velazquez made a quick update to his website.
