Rudy Giuliani doesn't understand how links work
As waxy noted: 'this might be funny if he wasn't Trump's cybersecurity advisor'.
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


Giuliani composed a tweet with no spaces after full stops, and a broken regexp at Twitter auto-linkified "G-20.In". An internet prankster registered this domain and Giuliani lost his shit in a spectacular display of incompetence.

The best bit? Here's a thread with the original devs: https://twitter.com/hoverbird/status/1070142045140877312 -- 'Hey @tw and @bcherry, remember all the debates we had about the linkifying regex around edge cases like this?'

did Google blacklist their own site?

The leading theory that I've seen going around is that Google is actually blocking all links in any FeedBurner feed, because it's a violation of its own terms of service. Seriously.

The link-shortener "goo.gl", run by Google, is blocking all URLs generated by Feedburner, run by Google. pic.twitter.com/IR7wrlv6xj

That's because Google's URL shortener's terms of service bans "URL re-directors" and it appears that the genius engineers at Google have decided that Google-run FeedBurner is nothing more than a URL re-director and killed off everyone's links without notice or explanation. This despite the fact that they're the same damn company and that FeedBurner unilaterally moved everyone's RSS feed to use Goo.gl links in the first place.

Google Cloud Platform HTTP/HTTPS Load Balancing
GCE's LB product is pretty nice -- HTTP/2 support, and a built-in URL mapping feature (presumably based on how Google approach that problem internally, I understand they take that approach). I'm hoping AWS are taking notes for the next generation of ELB, if that ever happens

DNS Pre-fetch Exposure on Thunderbird and Webmail
Ugh, very bad idea indeed. A backchannel for spammers/phishers/attackers from the mail reader is something we definitely do not want to provide. This is why we chose to cut URLs at the registrar boundary for URIBL lookups in SpamAssassin
