We regret to inform you that yet another Baby Boomer doesn't understand websites.
Last week, someone turned one of Rudy Giuliani's Twitter typos into a website that declares, "Donald J. Trump is a traitor to our country."
But Trump's lawyer and informal cybersecurity adviser doesn't understand how the internet works and seems to be convinced that "Twitter allowed someone to invade" his tweet with a "disgusting anti-President message."
Giuliani inadvertently added a live ".in" link to a tweet complaining about Robert Mueller's investigation into the Trump campaign as the president traveled to the G-20 summit. Then a brilliant soul got hold of G-20.in and turned it into a page calling out the president (.in is the internet domain for Indian sites). Giuliani finally responded to the sneaky move on Tuesday — and he desperately needs a lesson on how website domains work.
"The same thing-period no space-occured later and it didn't happen," he ranted in a follow-up tweet. "Don't tell me they are not committed cardcarrying anti-Trumpers."
Twitter allowed someone to invade my text with a disgusting anti-President message. The same thing-period no space-occurred later and it didn’t happen. Don’t tell me they are not committed cardcarrying anti-Trumpers. Time Magazine also may fit that description. FAIRNESS PLEASE

Twitter users didn't hold back on mocking him for completely missing the point.
Sorry, Rudy… you weren't supposed to get that. Running some tests on the Soros-funded Deep State emergency SMS notification system rn

so you have the audacity to brand yourself as a "cybersecurity expert" but you don't even know how domain name registration works
maybe, uh, retire
