Rudy Giuliani Doesn’t Know How The Internet Works

The BBC explains:

A critic of President Trump has taken advantage of a Twitter typo by his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, to mount an attack. 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.

The prankster subsequently acquired the webpage it directed users to. There, they posted a brief message saying: “Donald J Trump is a traitor to our country.”

Mr Giuliani’s tweet – which has been “liked” more than 39,000 times and retweeted more than 14,000 times – is still live, at the time of writing, four days after being created. Twitter turns text into a hyperlink only if it recognises the letters after a full stop as representing an established top-level domain (TLD) name.
