Trump tweets…the wrong Ivanka


NEW YORK: His daughter Ivanka may be Donald Trump’s favorite child but the president-elect apparently doesn’t know her Twitter handle, mistaking her for a British woman from the seaside town of Brighton. On Monday night, the Republican retweeted praise for his daughter from a Twitter user during a CNN profile of the incoming first daughter and wife of White House advisor in waiting Jared Kushner. But instead of using the 35-year-old businesswoman’s @IvankaTrump handle, the Twitter user wrote @Ivanka—the account of Ivanka Majic—whose own account subsequently lit up with thousands of messages. The New York billionaire, a prolific user of the social media site with more than 20 million Twitter followers, saw his post retweeted more than 6,600 times and liked more than 35,000 times. Majic, who once worked for Britain’s opposition Labour Party and is now employed by the local council, decided to use her newfound prominence to hit back. “And you’re a man with great responsibilities. May I suggest more care on Twitter and more time learning about #climatechange,” she replied to Trump in a message retweeted more than 3,360 times.
