  • Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s attorney,
    suggested his Twitter account was invaded after he
    unintentionally tweeted a link to an anti-Trump
    website.
  • Giuliani appears to have neglected to include an
    additional space at the end of his sentences, causing his tweet
    to link to the website “G-20.In,” a website with a domain from
    India.
  • The website currently displays a terse message about
    President Donald Trump.
  • In a tweet, Giuliani suggested — without evidence —
    that Twitter, may have been involved in linking his tweet to
    the apparent anti-Trump website.

Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s attorney and former mayor
of New York City, suggested his Twitter account was compromised
after his account unintentionally tweeted a link to an anti-Trump
website.

“Twitter allowed someone to invade my text with a disgusting
anti-President message,” Giuliani said on Twitter.

Giuliani appeared to be referring to a previous tweet sent on
Friday about special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing Russia
probe. The investigation reached a milestone on Tuesday after

Mueller filed a memo
recommending no prison time for former
national security adviser Michael Flynn.

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 abroad.

Giuliani referenced Trump’s trip to the G-20 summit in Argentina
last week, which followed former Trump attorney Michael Cohen
pleading guilty; and Trump’s Helsinki summit with Russian
President Vladimir Putin in July, which came days after 12
Russian military officials were indicted for hacking Democratic
Party operatives’ computers.

“Mueller filed an indictment just as the President left for
G-20.In July he indicted the Russian who will never come here
just before he left for Helsinki.Either could have been done
earlier or later. Out of control!Supervision please?” Giuliani
tweeted earlier on Tuesday.

Giuliani appears to have neglected to include an additional space
at the end of his sentences, causing his tweet to link to the
website “G-20.In,” a website with a domain from India.

The website itself shows a terse message:

Giuliani suggested without evidence that Twitter may have
been involved in linking his tweet to the apparent anti-Trump
website. 

“The same thing-period no space-occurred later and it didn’t
happen,” Giuliani said in his tweet. “Don’t tell me they are not
committed cardcarrying [sic] anti-Trumpers. Time Magazine also
may fit that description. FAIRNESS PLEASE.”

The tweet has since received around 16,000 retweets and 43,000
“likes,” making it one of the most-circulated messages on his
account.

Giuliani has also made several gaffes on Twitter in recent days.
On Friday, he tweeted “Kimim ° has f,” prompting the Twitterverse
to speculate on what he intended to type.

In recent weeks, the social media platform banned numerous
political operatives, including conspiracy theorist Alex Jones
and far-right provocateur Laura Loomer. Twitter’s decision
sparked backlash from both sides of the political aisle, worrying
some who fear that the company will be taking a more active role
in censoring its content.
