But the former Mayor of New York City is catching some flak for complaining about how Twitter "allowed someone to invade (his) text with a disgusting anti-President message", revealing to anyone with a basic understanding of how Twitter works, that Mr. Giuliani is...not someone with a basic understanding of how Twitter works.
Mueller filed an indictment just as the President left for https://t.co/8ZNrQ6X29a July he indicted the Russians who will never come here just before he left for Helsinki.Either could have been done earlier or later. He was referring to a November 30 tweet in which Giuliani - by failing to put a space after a period, and starting the next sentence with the word "In" - had inadvertently created a hyperlink. The Atlanta-based digital marketing director said he "knew immediately that it was just a typo", but he clicked on the link anyway - quickly realizing the domain was unregistered. With no facts or justification, he blamed Twitter, saying employees there are "cardcarrying anti-Trumpers". A spokesperson toldFortune that the company's "service worked as designed".
"Time Magazine also may fit that description", Giuliani concluded.
A Twitter spokesman balked at the claim, telling The New York Times "the accusation we're artificially injecting something into a tweet is completely false", adding that Twitter is actually created to prevent tweets from being edited. A period directly followed by "In" refers to domains that live on India's top-level domain. His consulting firm, Giuliani Partners, has a nominally cyber-focused subsidiary that does little actual technical work, and the man himself briefly served as (reportedly hapless) cybersecurity adviser to the White House. Others took note, per the Post, including Alyssa Milano and former Mexican president Vicente Fox, who tweeted "whoever is behind the g-20.in, is a godd-- genius".
