Rudy Giuliani blames Twitter for his spectacular typo fail

Share

Rudy Giuliani has accused Twitter of allowing someone to "invade" one of his tweets to spread an anti-Trump message, after the veteran Republican sent a message with a typo.

Dot in is a domain extension, no different than dot com, dot gov, or dot edu.

In Giuliani's tweet about the issue, he made a number of typos, since he apparently has an aversion to placing spaces after punctuation. But last night Giuliani chose to take the nonsense to extreme levels of nonsense, accusing "cardcarrying anti-Trumpers" at Twitter of allowing "someone to invade" his tweet to insert that link. "Out of control! Supervision please?" declared the former mayor of New York's tweet. Time Magazine also may fit that description. He shared what he had done on Twitter, writing, "Rudy didn't separate g-20 from.in so ya boy bought the domain". The spokesperson added that whenever someone tweets a Web address, a clickable link is automatically created.

When Giuliani discovered this, he again used the social network, declaring that "Twitter allowed someone to invade my text with a disgusting anti-president message". With no facts or justification, he blamed Twitter, saying employees there are "cardcarrying anti-Trumpers".

Mr Giuliani left out a space between a full stop and the following word within a tweet, which caused the text to become a link. He also was appointed by the president Trump to lead a cybersecurity advisory group for the Trump administration in summer of 2017.

An Atlanta resident and a missing space between sentences caused quite the headache for Rudolph Giuliani late last week, and the Twitter fallout has been impressive.

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".

After discovering the gaffe, Giuliani tweeted on Tuesday that he didn't mistype the tweet.

Before he took office, Trump named Giuliani a cybersecurity adviser.
