He then made G-2o.In into a real website - one with an anti-Trump message.

Automatic hyperlink generation, coupled with the ingenuity of netizens, played a dirty trick on the United States president's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, who went on a rant against Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Twitter.

"So the fact that Rudy Giuliani admitted that Donald Trump's tweet was encouraging something is an indication, whether it's to lie or not to lie". It meant Giuliani was unintentionally linking to the anti-Trump message.

Rudy Giuliani's original tweet with the typo and the link to the anti-Trump website has been shared over 16,000 times since it was published.

Well, Giuliani responded on Tuesday night by blaming Twitter for allowing this to happen and by making fun of Time Magazine.

"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". When publishing his tweet, Giuliani did not notice that Twitter had turned it blue, indicating it was clickable.

"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 card-carrying anti-Trumpers", he said, finishing his tweet with an all-caps plea for "fairness please". On Friday, he tweeted "Kimim ° has f", prompting the Twitterverse to speculate on what he meant to type.

Because of how Twitter works, hyperlinks are automatically created when valid domains are written out in tweets. 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.
