Instances is visible  here  and  here  .

The twitter reads: “Keep updated for huge information tomorrow. SidneyPowell1 and I’ve substantial proof scam and I will confirm that we have Dominion in our hands and are considering the logs. It will reveal scam to such level it will be irrefutable that @realDonaldTrump won in a landslide.”

A closer go through the screenshot shows that the Twitter consideration is “RudyGiulianI”, that has because been stopped by Twitter ( twitter.com/RudyGiulianl ). Giuliani’s real Twitter consideration is “giuliani twitter” ( twitter.com/RudyGiuliani ).

The twitter wasn’t from Giuliani’s standard consideration but still another consideration with the same sounding name. The twitter does not exist on Giuliani’s Twitter site  twitter.com/RudyGiuliani   ;. Reuters also could not think it is in ProPublica’s “Politwoops” archive, which tracks erased tweets by community officials  here  .

On Nov. 14, the New York Occasions noted Giuliani’s comments about voter scam were putting “gas to discredited theories”,  here   ;.They pointed for some of Giuliani’s past tweets including one  here  seemingly supporting a principle that George Soros is behind Smartmatic, an organization that produces voting machines used in some states. Yet another twitter issues choosing Dominion to rely votes  here   ;.

Dominion Voting Systems, an organization that products election engineering, was used in some U.S. claims and areas during this election ( www.dominionvoting.com/about/  ,  here ).

Reuters Reality Check early in the day this month debunked claims about Dominion application  here  and  here   ;.

VERDICT
False. The twitter arises from an consideration with the same username, and not Rudy Giuliani’s standard account.
