Trump's Lawyer Accidentally Dropped Link Into Tweet And Somebody Pounced

Last week, former NY mayor and current Donald Trump lawyer/professional sycophant Rudy Giuliani tweeted criticism of Robert Mueller's chosen timing for some of his recent investigation filings and how they, in his eyes, overshadowed or interfered with the G20 meetings in Argentina.

"Twitter allowed someone to invade my text with a disgusting anti-President message". 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. He accused Twitter of purposely planting the link, on the grounds that he made a similar typo in the same tweet when he wrote, "Helsinki.Either" but that instance did not create a link. He also was appointed by the president Trump to lead a cybersecurity advisory group for the Trump administration in summer of 2017.

The tweet, and subsequent misunderstanding of what caused the anti-Trump message, is particularly embarrassing for Guiliani, who serves as one of the nation's top cybersecurity advisors.

"Don't tell me they are not committed cardcarrying anti-Trumpers", Giuliani said of Twitter.

And based on some of the other tweets he's posted recently ...

Michael Cohen, Donald Trump's former lawyer, is busy singing for his freedom to Robert Mueller and those involved with the Russian Federation investigation.

A Twitter spokesman says the company can't edit users" tweets and "the accusation that we're artificially injecting something into a tweet is completely false'.

Velazquez doesn't think Giuliani will delete his original tweet.

In this case, the former NY mayor was unlucky to have begun his follow-up sentence with the word "in" - which is used to denote domains operated under the authority of India. "On the first occasion, what resulted was "G-20.In", which looked to Twitter like a hyperlink, as ".in" is the Internet country code for India, reports the Washington Post-so it was automatically made into a clickable link.

"That would mean that I forced him to delete it", he said.
