Rudy Giuliani Goes Full Conspiracy Theory Because He Doesn't Understand The Internet
Dec 06, 2018, 01:04
Because Giuliani doesn't understand how computers work, he then got angry that the link he himself typed was in his tweet, assumed it was Twitter itself allowing someone to "invade him" with liberal content - and went ballistic.
Giuliani's tweet notes, "Mueller filed an indictment just as the President left for G-20.In July he indicted the Russians who will never come here just before he left for Helsinki". By failing to put a space between the period and the "In" in the next sentence, that section became a link. Someone noticed G-20.In was unregistered, so they bought it for themselves and posted the message "Donald J. Trump is a traitor to our country". He saw Giuliani's tweet at 6:20 p.m. and had to act in an improv show at 7 p.m. Therefore Giuliani inadvertently created a url, which Twitter turned into a link.
"Don't tell me they are not committed cardcarrying anti-Trumpers", Giuliani said of Twitter.
Giuliani suggested without evidence that Twitter may have been involved in linking his tweet to the apparent anti-Trump website.
A spokesperson told Fortune that the company's "service worked as designed".
The social media platform automatically added a hyperlink over the text. Here's its statement to the New York Times: "The accusation that we're artificially injecting something into a tweet is completely false". For Rudy Giuliani, the big issue is that there were zero. Twitter's service is intelligent enough to know when something is a domain and something is not.
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. It's similar to.co.uk in the United Kingdom or.us in the United States.
In other words, if Giuliani tried again to post something with a.In, it would create a link.
