Giuliani Misses a Space on Twitter and Things Spiral

Rudy Giuliani

In January of 2017, Trump named Giuliani as his cybersecurity advisor.

Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's attorney and former mayor of New York City, suggested his Twitter account was compromised after his account unintentionally tweeted a link to an anti-Trump website. Resourceful "Trump haters" quickly bought the hyperlink's domain and wrote a single sentence there - "Donald J. Trump is a traitor to our country", which due to Giuliani's mistake was then shared with his 200,000 subscribers.

Unfortunately for Giuliani, a lack of spacing between his sentences meant that Twitter automatically detected the phrase G-20.In as a potentially valid web URL operated from India, and turned it into a link.

Instead of seeing the obvious answer, Giuliani is convinced that he is the latest target for a supposed anti-conservative bias on social media.

Several Twitter users suggested that Trump's lawyer might be a secret member of the so-called "Resistance", which allegedly sabotages the United States president's "dangerous" initiatives from within the White House.

Kid Rock slams Joy Behar in Fox interview
WSMV reported that the replacement comes after Rock made derogatory comments about Joy Behar on an episode of Fox & Friends. That honor now goes to James Shaw Jr., local hero of the Antioch Waffle House shooting.

It all started around 6 p.m. Friday, when Velazquez came across the random hyperlink in Giuliani's tweet. The same thing-period no space-occurred later and it didn't happen. He said that he tested a period not followed by a space after he sent the original tweet out and no link was created. For example, writing out Twitter.com in a tweet would create a link to Twitter's homepage.

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.

Giuliani was immediately roasted by the internet for what one Twitter user described as "turning a typo into a full on conspiracy theory".

He continued: "Don't tell me they are not committed cardcarrying anti-Trumpers".

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.
