When photographer Mert and his friend Kim hang out together she often takes photos and uploads them to Twitter and Instagram. Unfortunately, Kim's been tagging 17-year-old Mert.

The teenager started to respond with affectionate replies.


Kocanla ters düşecez en sonda 😄 @KimKardashian

"You're going to get me in trouble with your husband."

Thank you for everything @KimKardashian

Kim still hasn't noticed and keeps on tagging the wrong Alas.

Loved this Idea for the September covers of @interviewmag face timing with @Mertalas #interviewgang

Even Miley Cyrus has done it.

Speaking to Turkish publication Milliyet, Alas said he doesn't mind the confusion as it got him more Twitter followers.

"Before this I had 200 followers," said Alas. "Thanks to Miley Cyrus I got 600. And after Kim I got 65 more.”
