Irony is Dead: Rudy Giuliani Issues Warning About People Spreading “Misinformation” on Twitter
Rudy Giuliani has never come off as the most self aware person in the world. There was the hair dye incident back in November of 2020. The former New York City mayor was also humiliated when he was tricked into a skit for the new Borat movie.
Still, Giuliani thinks that his 1.1 million Twitter followers are counting on him for advice. And on Wednesday night he decided to give them some. The sometimes Trump lawyer warned his followers that lots of people spread misinformation on the website.
Giuliani tweeted, “Misinformation has become a daily occurrence on social media platforms. If continued unaddressed, it will eventually lead to Jefferson’s worst nightmare of a poorly informed citizenry, which he saw as the greatest danger to democracy.”

The former Mayor also shared a nearly 30 minute long video where he analyzed the topic. Giuliani, of course, has been lying about election fraud for the last 5 months. These lies have led to him being named in a $1.3 billion lawsuit from voting company Dominion.
In addition, Giuliani recently had his YouTube account suspended for spreading false information. A spokesperson for the site said, “We removed content from the Rudy W. Giuliani channel for violating our sale of regulated goods policy, which prohibits content facilitating the use of nicotine, and our presidential election integrity policy. Additionally, in accordance with our long standing strikes system, we issued a strike against the Rudy W. Giuliani channel, which temporarily restricts uploading or live-streaming.”
