Twitter Rebuffs Rudy Giuliani's Claim That the Social Network Sabotaged Him

Twitter Rebuffs Rudy Giuliani's Claim That the Social Network Sabotaged Him

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

There, they posted a brief message saying: "Donald J Trump is a traitor to our country". "However, because (1) the lack of a period mushes these together as "G-20.In" and (2) because ".in" is the top level domain for India, Twitter interpreted that as a link to the website g-20.in. But what they may not know is that Giuliani is also an informal advisor to Trump on cybersecurity.

For their part, a spokesperson for Twitter categorically denied Giuliani's inference, stating "the accusation that we're artificially injecting something into a tweet is completely false".

Possibly trying to get the most out of his 280 characters or maybe just unfamiliar with phone keyboards, he emitted the spaces between the periods and the first letter of the following sentence.

Giuliani's original tweet has now gained nearly 50,000 likes and 17,000 retweets - but the wealthy lawyer was not impressed, lashing out at the social network. "Instead he tweeted about it and created a conspiracy theory against Twitter".

Because of how Twitter works, hyperlinks are automatically created when valid domains are written out in tweets.

However, since there are no global regulations that outlaw He's actions, his use of CRISPR-cas9 is a clear break with convention. As gene-editing technology is at initial stages, it is hard to judge what the consequences of using human embryos could lead to.

One Twitter user previously claimed credit for taking advantage of this window of opportunity. With no facts or justification, he blamed Twitter, saying employees there are "cardcarrying anti-Trumpers".

While he isn't sure exactly what prompted Giuliani to defend himself, Velazquez said he saw the new tweet was shared around the same time the news broke that Mueller had recommended former national security adviser Michael Flynn serve no prison time.

Giuliani has actually made this mistake before.

"As fun as this is, this not the most important thing going on right now by far", Velazquez said.
