Rudy Giuliani President Donald Trump’s attorney uses a smartphone during an event outside the White House in May. After Giuliani accidentally tweeted a hyperlink — and a prankster took advantage of it — the president’s lawyer baselessly accused

On Friday, Giuliani took to Twitter to rail against Robert Mueller in a five-sentence tweet.

A very ideal example of this is Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of NY and now an attorney for Donald Trump.

Giuliani is referring to the fact that if you go to the website "G-20.in", you will see the text "Donald J. Trump is a traitor to our country". He shared what he had done on Twitter, writing, "Rudy didn't separate g-20 from.in so ya boy bought the domain".

Some social media users noted that it was refreshing to hear the "truth" from Giuliani for a change. Giuliani has served as President's Trump's lawyer, and also as his cybersecurity advisor.

A Twitter spokesman said "the accusation that we're artificially injecting something into a tweet is completely false". By failing to put a space between the period and the "In" in the next sentence, that section became a link.

"In a tweet Friday, the former Big Apple mayor failed to add a space between a period and the word "in" - creating the term ".In", which is used to denote websites operated in India.

At most, Velazquez thought his stunt would get a "few hundred retweets" and then be absorbed into the Twittersphere, but by early Wednesday morning, Giuliani's tweet containing the link had about 45,000 likes and almost 17,000 retweets.

As to Giuliani's argument that the second "period no space" instance in his original tweet didn't create a similar link, that's because Helsinki.Either, so far, is not a working domain.

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.

One Twitter user previously claimed credit for taking advantage of this window of opportunity.

In his tweet, the president's attorney railed against Mueller for the timing of the special counsel's legal moves, two of which were issued while Trump was traveling overseas.

Giuliani has also made several gaffes on Twitter in recent days. "Either I affect what his message is, or I affect what his message is".
