"Don't tell me they are not committed cardcarrying [sic] anti-Trumpers", he wrote. But, we shouldn't forget Giuliani's previous jobs.

Nor is it the first time that politicians have run into issues related to domain names. Sen. Of course, when the press explored what that actually meant, it was fairly limited.

"Wow big crime for a SPECIAL WHATEVER", Giuliani texted to Politico. "Basically, not to prevent a Target [breach], but how to prevent a Target CEO being fired".

But have no fear, Giuliani - President Donald Trump's former cybersecurity adviser is on the case.

There's a lot going on here, so if you haven't been following all of this, it may take a bit to unpack. Giuliani is making a weird unfounded claim that Mueller is specifically timing his indictments to times when the President is about to leave town for worldwide gatherings.

Here's what happened. Giuliani was referring to a previous tweet in which he made a typo when referring to the G-20 conference in Argentina. This caused the word "G-20", a period (.), and the word "in" located in the following sentence to all run together, like this, "G-20.in". The next sentence begins "In".

He announced the move on the platform, writing: "Rudy didn't separate g-20 from.in so ya boy bought the domain". Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

Brian Mulroney remembers George HW Bush as 'a great friend of Canada'
The Baltimore Orioles baseball team announced plans to join in mourning the loss of the former president as well. President, Donald Trump, and his wife, Melania, the Trumps lauded the contributions of the ex- American leader.

"The same thing-period no space-occurred later and it didn't happen", Giuliani said in his tweet.

Despite all of Giuliani's tinfoil hat protestations, the Trump lawyer is not the victim of a malicious bias from Twitter.

Once he even told reporters he had toured a rural New Hampshire hospital where a woman rumoured to be his mistress worked to learn about its cybersecurity program.

A Twitter spokesman told the New York Times that "the accusation we're artificially injecting something into a tweet is completely false", adding that the social media site can not edit tweets. Here's its statement to the New York Times: "The accusation that we're artificially injecting something into a tweet is completely false". The lack of knowledgeable people about real online security issues in the government - especially when computer security issues are so vital to nearly everything these days - is a real problem.

Several Twitter users suggested that Trump's lawyer might be a secret member of the so-called "Resistance", which allegedly sabotages the USA president's "dangerous" initiatives from within the White House.

And, yes, there are actually a number of other people in the government who do truly understand this stuff. Right now, in 2018, Guiliani believes he is being maliciously cyberattacked on Twitter because he doesn't know how links work.
