President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani was ripped on social media Tuesday for claiming that Twitter allowed someone to hack his tweet to plant a hyperlink to a site critical of Trump.
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

What actually happened: Giuliani’s tweet contained a grammatical error that just so happened to resemble a url with a .in domain that, completely outside of Twitter, was quickly purchased by someone who created a website that displayed the “disgusting anti-President message.” https://t.co/NbRKpcXpcF
