A woman from Brighton in England got an unusual surprise overnight when she was tagged in a tweet from President-elect Donald Trump.

Mr Trump quoted another user's praise for his daughter Ivanka - but it was the wrong @Ivanka tagged in the tweet.

The recipient was instead Brighton woman Ivanka Majic, who woke up early this morning to calls from the media and a string of Twitter notifications.

BBC reports she is a digital consultant, and she told the broadcaster: "Without Donald Trump it's a steady simmer of mentions. I am kind of like that @johnlewis bloke but John Lewis is probably nicer to be associated with."

Ms Majic did take the opportunity to use the sudden attention to address the President-elect himself.

In a response, she urged the soon-to-be US president to be more careful on Twitter and to spend 'more time learning about climate change'.
