Rudy Giuliani Thinks His Twitter Typo Is the Result of a Grand Anti-Trump Conspiracy

Rudy Giuliani is not happy after a social media prankster purchased a domain name that the former New York City mayor inadvertently typed in a tweet and redirected followers to a website calling President Donald Trump a “traitor.”

Sometime after Giuliani posted a Friday tweet lashing out at Special Counsel Robert Mueller, a Twitter user appeared to register the “G-20.In” domain that Giuliani inadvertently linked to by not leaving a space between sentences.

Users who click the hyperlink in Giuliani’s tweet are redirected to the following message:

But have no fear, Giuliani — President Donald Trump’s former cybersecurity adviser is on the case. In a follow-up tweet on Tuesday evening, Giuliani declared that he was not victim to a simple prank as a result of a typo, but was simply the latest supporter of the president to be victimized by Twitter.

“Twitter allowed someone to invade my text with a disgusting anti-President message,” Giuliani wrote.

Giuliani appears to attribute the hyperlink to a malicious effort by Twitter because of his second typo, “Helsinki.Either,” did not have the same result. But what Giuliani doesn’t seem to understand is that “Helsinki.Either” can’t be registered because it’s not a valid domain. The first typo was only able to be turned into a link because “.in” is the country code top-level domain for India.

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

“Don’t tell me they are not committed cardcarrying [sic] anti-Trumpers,” he wrote. “Time Magazine also may fit that description.”

Despite all of Giuliani’s tinfoil hat protestations, the Trump lawyer is not the victim of a malicious bias from Twitter. Rather, he’s simply the victim of his own clumsy Twitter fingers.

And based on some of the other tweets he’s posted recently …

… that shouldn’t be too hard to believe.

The guy is crazy and likely just hates Twitter beyond reason. What is most ridiculous is this guy is supposed to have an understanding of cybersecurity, but struggles with just basic understanding on URLs.
