President-elect Donald Trump mistakenly directed a tweet intended for his daughter Ivanka Trump to a woman that shares her name who lives in Brighton. The forty-fifth #president of the United States quoted a tweet that was praising his daughter by Lawrence Goodstein from Massachusetts but tagged the wrong person.

The wrong handle

Instead of tagging his daughter, Trump tagged Ivanka Majic, a council worker from Brighton. Majic was asleep when Trump tagged her in a tweet. She woke up to countless notifications.

When Ivanka Majic woke up, she responded to Trump by stating: "@realDonaldTrump @drgoodspine you're a man with great responsibilities.

May I suggest more care on Twitter and more time learning about #climatechange".

Although thousands of people have commented on Trump's mistake, the president-elect is yet to delete the tweet or acknowledge his mistake. Trump was live tweeting his daughter's interview with CNN when he made the error. The president-elect recently took umbrage with CNN for reporting on unsubstantiated reports by Buzzfeed.

Ivanka Majic's previous activity on Twitter was a response urging people to vote in an upcoming restaurant competition in Brighton. Ironically, she tweeted: "Made the local newspaper. Fame at last". Meanwhile, Ivanka Trump, who worked closely with her father throughout his campaign to become the forty-fifth present of the United States, seemed oblivious to the mistake of her father. CNN are set to release a series of programmes about the Trump family, with features on her two older brothers being released in the coming weeks.

The @POTUS Twitter Handle

As of Friday, the multi-billionaire will have the option of taking over the official @POTUS Twitter account. However, Trump has more followers - over 20,000,000 compared to the @POTUS account which has 13,500,000-on his personal account. At the time of publishing, Trump has yet to indicate whether he will switch accounts.

Sean Spicer, the incoming press secretary, told CNN that Trump will probably "be tweeting from both accounts". The president-elect was previously hacked on Twitter in 2013. #Donald Trump #Tw
