Twitter tries to verify pornstar, verifies random user instead


Keiran? Kieran? What's the difference? Well, a career in pornography for one.

In an attempt to verify the Twitter account of pornstar Keiran Lee, the social media giant messed up their 'e's and 'i's and, instead, gave everyday guy Kieran Lee a taste of Twitter fame.

Kieran responded with the appropriate level of confusion and excitement.

Adult film performer Keiran Lee wasn't a spoiled sport about it at all. Instead, he seemed rather supportive.

Unfortunately though, fame was brief for the ice hockey fan from Edinburgh.

So here's to all the dreamers out there — as long as you kinda share a name with a pornstar, you, too, may get verified. It just won't last very long.
