Tweeting the wrong person in a post can be embarrassing, especially when you are the next president of the United States.
Apparently, President-elect Donald Trump did not know his daughter Ivanka’s full Twitter account name and tweeted the wrong person on Monday.

But Trump’s daughter is not “@Ivanka” on Twitter. Her account name is “@IvankaTrump.”
The president-elect got a response directly from @Ivanka, who is Ivanka Majic from England. Her tweet included a message and image about climate change.

The digital consultant from Brighton told BBC that calls from the media awoke her at 6:00 a.m. with the news.
“I came downstairs to check my phone and I had so many notifications. It’s very unusual to be speaking to both ITV and the BBC 45 minutes into your day,” she said.
Majic revealed she had been mistaken for Trump’s daughter before on Twitter, but obviously the attention was magnified by a direct tweet from the incoming president.
“During the election I had a Twitter bot for everyone who accidentally mentioned me encouraging them to vote for Hillary (Clinton),” she said.
“I’m still undecided about whether to change my username. I don’t use Twitter very much partly as a result of having so many mentions. Tweets from normal people get lost in the mix,” Majic added.
“I’m someone who has used twitter since 2007. A new thing comes along and you create a username never thinking that one day Ivanka Trump’s dad will be President,” she told BBC.
With over 6,000 likes and more than 2,000 retweets, the “other Ivanka” found herself a sudden celebrity.
