Rudy Giuliani helps create anti-Trump protest website with Twitter typo

'I kind of chuckled a little bit that he created this accidental link, ' the Atlanta-based digital marketing director told paper.

With his tweet, Giuliani appeared to question why a link hadn't also been placed over the section "Helsinki.Either" ― where he'd further failed to leave a space.

Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani is furious after he inadvertently made an anti-Trump website go viral.

Still, that doesn't directly answer Giuliani's claim that he couldn't recreate the issue a second time. 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.

"Because ".in" is the internet domain extension for sites in India, Twitter interpreted it as a website, and created a link. In that tweet, Giuliani typed, "Mueller filed an indictment just as the President left for G-20.In July..."

Once again, Giuliani is Trump's special adviser on cybersecurity and he doesn't understand that the link was generated automatically. But when conservatives think they're not getting enough attention, they-the group that loves to claim liberals are the ones "triggered" by actual injustices-have an incredible talent for manufacturing elaborate conspiracy theories.

Asked why he hired Cohen in the first place if he's such "a bum", Trump replied that the lawyer had once done him "a favor". Cohen made the $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels, the porn star who claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006.

Now, below the anti-Trump text in slightly smaller font, is a headline about Mueller and Flynn that links to a relevant Reddit thread.

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

The rest of the internet has been having lots of fun with this, mocking Giuliani, and I'm amazed that the tweet has stayed up for as long as it has.

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'.

Several people noted the former mayor of New York City was, a one time, a top cybersecurity advisor to Trump. Twitter's service is intelligent enough to know when something is a domain and something is not.
