Rudy Giuliani has accused Twitter of allowing someone to "break in" one of his tweets to spread an anti-Trump message after the veteran Republican sent a message with a typo.
On 30 November, Giuliani sent a tweet criticizing Robert Mueller for having brought charges when Donald Trump headed for the G20 summit in Buenos Aires. Giuliani said that in July Muller acted similarly when Trump left for a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and that sooner or later the measures could easily have been taken. Supervision please? "Declared the former mayor of New York the tweet.
Unfortunately for Giuliani, the absence of gaps between his sentences meant that Twitter automatically recognized the phrase G-20. As a potentially valid Web URL from India and turned it into a link. When publishing his tweet, Giuliani did not notice that Twitter colored him blue, suggesting that he was clickable.
However, this was discovered by Jason Velazquez, an Arizona-based website designer who immediately saw the potential for a prank. and registers the domain. Then he turned G-2o into a real website – one with an anti-Trump message.
When Giuliani discovered this, he again used the social network, in which he declared that Twitter could let someone in. My text with a disgusting anti-presidential message. "
Perhaps he testifies to a lack of understanding of how web hyperlinks work:" The same thing – no time periods – came later and it did not happen.

Giuliani's response to a common, sometimes Trump's, self-proclaimed reputation for the Conservative voices of Silicon Valley led Giuliani to say that Twitter did so deliberately. "Do not tell me they did not use anti-Trumpers with card holders," he said, adding while on the subject, "Time magazine could also fit that description." He ended his tweet with a lewd plea for "Fairness please."
Velazquez's website consists of two elements, displaying the message that Giuliani called "disgusting" – "Donald J Trump is a traitor to our country" – and a link to reporting on the Investigation of Muller.
Velazquez described the setting up of the site as a 15-minute work.
A Twitter spokesman categorically denied Giuliani's conclusion: "The charge of artificially injecting something into a tweet is completely wrong."
Giuliani's original tweet with the typo and link to the Anti-Trump website has been shared over 16,000 times since its release. Giuliani was Trump's lawyer and also his cybersecurity adviser.
