  • Trump’s Cybersecurity Advisor Rudy Giuliani Thinks His Twitter Was Hacked Because Someone Took Advantage of His Typo

    Rudy Giuliani, who was named President Trump’s cybersecurity advisor last year, demonstrated on Tuesday that he does not understand how Twitter works...or hyperlinks...or domain registration.

    Giuliani tweeted that Twitter had allowed someone to “invade” a tweet he sent on November 30, because that tweet linked to a website with the words “Donald J. Trump is a traitor to our country.”

    But rather than recognizing this rather clever own, Giuliani has instead blamed Twitter, claiming the site is run by “committed cardcarrying anti-Trumpers.”

    Just to reiterate, this is from the man who led the cybersecurity working group for Trump’s transition team and is, the last we heard, the president’s cybersecurity advisor (as well as his personal lawyer). Yet he seems to believe his tweet’s link is actually the result of some kind of Twitter-facilitated hack, rather than a typo.
