Twitter goof snares Trump lawyer/cyber advisor Giuliani

Twitter goof snares Trump lawyer/cyber advisor Giuliani”

CNET rounds up some of the tweeted replies to Giuliani in that vein (read them here), like this one: "Did you try unplugging it then plugging it back in?"

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".

By the time Giuliani, who heads the Giuliani Partners cyber security consulting firm, took notice Tuesday of the error, his tweet became one of his most-ever liked, forwarded and commented upon.

Mr Giuliani failed to insert a space in between two sentences in a tweet he posted last week.

Jurgen Klopp charged by FA and not a single Liverpool fan cares
Match-winner Origi emerged as a substitute in the 84th minute, replacing Roberto Firmino. Klopp, who admitted the goal was "a bit lucky", expressed his delight for Origi.

"This did not create a link because ".either" is not a domain extension.

"Ignorant as to what had happened", as TechCrunch put it, Giuliani tried to defend his claim by arguing about an anti-Republican bias he says he has detected on the site in general. "Don't tell me they are not committed card-carrying anti-Trumpers", he said, finishing his tweet with an all-caps plea for "fairness please".

Once he even told reporters he had toured a rural New Hampshire hospital where a woman rumoured to be his mistress worked to learn about its cybersecurity program.

A Twitter spokesman told the New York Times that "the accusation we're artificially injecting something into a tweet is completely false", adding that the social media site can not edit tweets.

Why the Redskins discussed and rejected Colin Kaepernick
The Redskins are 6-6 and have lost four of their past five games. Sanchez's experience in a prostyle offense helped out a lot. Mark Sanchez replaced McCoy under center.

"Time Magazine also may fit that description", Giuliani concluded. Twitter's service is intelligent enough to know when something is a domain and something is not. "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.

Rudy Giuliani's original tweet with the typo and the link to the anti-Trump website has been shared over 16,000 times since it was published.

Giuliani has some history with technology. Giuliani said Mueller had done similar in July as Trump left for a meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, and that the actions could have been easily taken earlier or later.
