‘INVADED’

Prankster Mocked Giuliani’s Twitter Typo With $6 G-20.in Domain

A pop-up anti-Trump website—created to match a Rudy Giuliani typo on Twitter—was the work of an Atlanta-based digital-marketing director, who purchased the Indian domain name G-20.in for just $6. The former New York mayor and current lawyer to Donald Trump had inadvertently created a link to that address in a tweet with a no-space typo. Jason Velazquez told The Washington Post that he clicked the link, saw that nobody owned it and decided to set up a site himself at the url in which he branded Trump as a “traitor.” He said he thought the stunt would get a “few hundred retweets” but by early Wednesday morning, Giuliani’s tweet containing the link had about 45,000 likes and nearly 17,000 retweets. The prank has infuriated Giuliani, President Trump’s cybersecurity adviser, who wrongly blamed Twitter on Tuesday for allowing “someone to invade my text.”
