Rudy Giuliani is having some Twitter trouble.
It started last week with a covfefe-esque tweet.
Nope. No idea.
Then he tweeted this, which resulted in one of Twitter's greatest moments of 2018.
Putting a period between any two letters on Twitter instantly creates a hyperlink. A hero who remains anonymous registered the G-20.in domain name and directed it to a webpage with a simple message.
When Giuliani, who once served as a cybersecurity expert for the Trump administration, found out about the hyperlink, he apologized for his punctuation error and said he would be more careful in the future.
Just kidding. He's blaming Twitter.
Trump hires all the best people. He really does. Let's hope these text invaders are brought to justice.
Please hurry, Mr. Mueller.

Rudy Giuliani fatfingered a tweet last week and inadvertently referenced a nonexistent URL (G-20.in); some clever wag registered the URL and stood up a static landing page that reads "Donald J. Trump is a traitor to our country."
Wanna see how an insurgent, anti-establishment candidate can use snark, personality, and a combative spirit to advance the political dialog? Stop following Cheeto Hitler and start following the youngest Congresswoman in US history, the amazing, delightful, on fire Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (previously).
