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

Giuliani's Twitter typo used to abuse President Trump Rudy Giuliani has no idea how the internet works

"The same thing-period no space-occurred later and it didn't happen", Giuliani said in his tweet. Giuliani has served as President's Trump's lawyer, and also as his cybersecurity advisor.

Still, that doesn't directly answer Giuliani's claim that he couldn't recreate the issue a second time. In this case, .in is the country code top-level domain for India, so Twitter interpreted "G-20.In" as a URL, linking it to http://g-20.in/.

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.

The website involved appears to have been set up by a marketing director based in Atlanta, Georgia, who acted within hours of the tweet being posted.

The possibility of such sensitive information being sent to TRAI DND is likely why Apple said that there was risk to user privacy. Customers who are already using the old app can continue to do so without having to download it afresh.

G-20.In is a real domain name, but it hadn't been used before Giuliani tweeted it. Twitter automatically converts such valid links into blue, clickable text. There, you can find many, many articles about Mueller's Russian Federation investigation and the Trump-related discoveries thereof. The first time this happened, the sentence ended with "G-20". This isn't out of the ordinary for Giuliani; however, a missing space between two sentences turned what should have been normal text into a hyperlink.

Once he even told reporters he had toured a rural New Hampshire hospital where a woman rumoured to be his mistress worked to learn about its cybersecurity program.

"Any suggestion that we artificially injected something into the user's account is false", the spokesperson said. For example, writing out Twitter.com in a tweet would create a link to Twitter's homepage. The former New York City mayor reacted in outrage, claiming that the so-called "committed card-carrying anti-Trumpers" at Twitter had "allowed someone to invade" his tweet.

Keep that in mind as we travel back to Friday, when Giuliani tweeted some complaints about Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Twitter's service is intelligent enough to know when something is a domain and something is not.
