Rudy Giuliani's Twitter typo leads to anti-Trump prank

Cybersecurity adviser Rudy Giuliani doesnt understand the internet

Because Giuliani doesn't understand how computers work, he then got angry that the link he himself typed was in his tweet, assumed it was Twitter itself allowing someone to "invade him" with liberal content - and went ballistic.

This is precisely what happened when Rudy Giuliani tweeted a typo that created a link during a recent rant about how Robert Mueller's investigation is "out of control".

Jason Velazquez knew it was an oops, but clicked on the link anyway, saw no one owned it, scooped it up for roughly $6, and used it to display a white sentence on a black background: "Donald J. Trump is a traitor to our country".

Before he took office, Trump named Giuliani a cybersecurity adviser.

He announced the move on the platform, writing: "Rudy didn't separate g-20 from.in so ya boy bought the domain".

Some social media users noted that it was refreshing to hear the "truth" from Giuliani for a change.

Twitter denied Giuliani's allegations.

"The same thing-period no space-occured later and it didn't happen", he ranted in a follow-up tweet. His "evidence" for this was the fact that the second time in that same tweet where he made the same "no space after a period" typo - creating "Helsinki.Either" - it did not turn into a link.

Rudy Giuliani issued a garbled text message response late Tuesday to a reporter seeking comment on Mike Flynn's sentencing memo. "Don't tell me they are not committed card-carrying anti-Trumpers", he said, finishing his tweet with an all-caps plea for "fairness please".

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.

Maybe, Velazquez said, Giuliani had wanted to "take some of the attention away" from the court filing. "Many complaints", Trump tweeted.

Be on the lookout for more updates to the website Giuliani never meant to invent.
