Rudy Giuliani has no idea how the internet works

Still, a lot of heads spun around when Giuliani himself was named as Trump's cybersecurity advisor, because, as basically everyone recognized, he does not appear to know anything about cybersecurity.

Netizens dissatisfied with US President Donald Trump's actions just received an unexpected gift from a member of the Trump team, Rudy Giuliani, who accidently created a hyperlink in his Tweet by neglecting the space between sentences. The URL was purchased and then used to send a single message about how they felt about the president, reading: "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. "However, because (1) the lack of a period mushes these together as "G-20.In" and (2) because ".in" is the top level domain for India, Twitter interpreted that as a link to the website g-20.in.

In recent weeks, the social media platform banned numerous political operatives, including conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and far-right provocateur Laura Loomer. Giuliani also demanded fairness.

One twitterian even posited that it might have been a message from Giuliani to Mueller, simply concealed as an angry rant about his investigation. The same thing-period no space-occurred later and it didn't happen.

What makes you think they didn't? And none of it was bad. "I have no further comment (regarding where he goes from here)". He came to Ohio State in 2017 after coaching for 17 years in the National Football League and college level.

"I wanted something. bold", he said.

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. With no facts or justification, he blamed Twitter, saying employees there are "cardcarrying anti-Trumpers". If, however, someone were to remove the space after a period and follow that with random letters or words that aren't assigned to a top-level domain, Twitter won't automatically convert that into a link.

Giuliani's original tweet has now gained nearly 50,000 likes and 17,000 retweets - but the wealthy lawyer was not impressed, lashing out at the social network.

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

Now, below the anti-Trump text in slightly smaller font, is a headline about Mueller and Flynn that links to a relevant Reddit thread.
