Ivanka Majić, from Brighton who was mistaken for Ivanka Trump on Twitter by none other than the US President-elect himself has Explained how it had been a surreal start to the day.
Majic, a digital consultant, said she and her husband were woken at 06:00 by calls from the media.
They told her she featured in a tweet to Donald Trump’s 20 million followers.
Mr Trump was quoting praise for his daughter from another Twitter user, who had used the wrong username. A mistake Trump did not recognise from the profile name or photograph.
Twitter users were quick to jump into the conversation and point out the mistake.
Majić who has worked for the Labour Party in the past, said she discovered what had happened when a news agency texted her husband.
“I came downstairs to check my phone and I had so many notifications,” she told the BBC. “It’s very unusual to be speaking to both ITV and the BBC, 45 minutes into your day.”
Majić has the username @Ivanka whilst Trump’s daughter uses @IvankaTrump. Majić said she receives a steady stream of miss directed tweets from the public at large.
“Without Donald Trump it’s a steady simmer of mentions,” she said. “I am kind of like that @johnlewis bloke but John Lewis is probably nicer to be associated with.”
Majić who joined twitter in 2007 said she rarely used twitter now as a result of the miss directed tweets.
