The tweet was deleted, but not before the Internet sunk its teeth into it.
During Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s speech at the Republican National Convention Wednesday night, Donald Trump (or whoever was running his Twitter account at the time) tweeted Walker a thank you.
The problem? He tweeted it to the wrong Scott Walker.
But it’s not a new problem for the other Walker, a news anchor in New Orleans, so he took it in stride. He even has a hashtag for every time it happens: #WrongScottWalker.
He called it the best #WrongScottWalker ever, followed by “RIP, my mentions.”
The title of best #WrongScottWalker previously belonged to the Ted Cruz 2016 page, which put anchor Walker’s Twitter profile picture in place of Gov. Walker’s.
Walker told the Daily Caller in 2015 that the mistake had been going on for years. Many were people tweeting encouragement, others were seeking to talk to him about policy positions. All were to the wrong person.
It’s unclear why this particular Walker has attracted Twitter’s constant mistakes. There are numerous Scott Walkers on Twitter, and the anchor’s account isn’t verified. His picture bears a passing resemblance, in that they’re both white men with dark hair.
