The internet is full of myriad jokes about Tiffany Trump being the forgotten Trump sibling, but Ivanka Trump may have just taken it all to a whole new level.
Yesterday was Tiffany Trump's birthday, and Ivanka posted an ebullient tweet wishing her half-sister all the best on her special day.
The only problem was, she tagged the wrong Tiffany Trump.
Happy birthday @tiffanytrump! Hope this year marks your best turn yet around the sun! Love you so much! ❤️ https://t.co/jXPRemDCAD— Ivanka Trump (@Ivanka Trump)1602600749.0
Accompanied by a photo of herself holding a toddler-aged Tiffany back in the day Ivanka's caption read:
"Happy birthday @tiffanytrump!"
"Hope this year marks your best turn yet around the sun! Love you so much!"
However, Tiffany Trump's Twitter handle is @TiffanyATrump.
The account Ivanka Trump tagged, however, appears to be a bot account. Aside from its use of a famous name that obviously belongs to someone else, it has no bio or links; has never tweeted a single thing or replied to any other tweets, despite supposedly having been created in 2010; and it is following no other accounts and has no profile picture.
These are all tell-tale signs of a fake account used for trolling, disinformation, spamming or impersonation online. And while the account does have 690 followers, there's no way of knowing when those followers were amassed—it could well have been in the last 24 hours, since Ivanka's "happy birthday" tweet that tagged the bot account.
That middle initial in Tiffany name makes all the difference, it seems!
Taken all together, and combined with the fact that Tiffany appears to be crying and desperately trying to get away from Ivanka in the photo included in the tweet, this was one super strange birthday wish.
As journalist Erin Gloria Ryan put it in her reply to Ivanka's tweet:
"What a weird-a*s post."
And on Twitter, people could not help but roast Ivanka for this very "only in Trumpworld" moment.

And the other weird elements and subtexts of this tweet didn't go unnoticed either.
