Fancy having a surname Hedges-Stocks who had been inadvertently seen 40 million times on Twitter.
Zoe has been inundated with thousands of requests for financial advice and trading tips after people misinterpreted her surname.
Zoah Hedges-Stocks, a 31-year-old writer from Leiston, Suffolk, stated on Twitter hers was “ not a finance account” and did “not have any trading advice” in response to queries about GameStop shares. Gamestop shares surged 700 per cent as amateurs, inspired by tips shared on social media, tried to get their hands on the stock to make a quick buck.
Since posting it on 29 January it has been retweeted 54, 000 times, and more than 700, 000 people have reacted to it, the power of the social network.
Her tweet inspired several other copycat tweets including a Mr. Bonvino who admitted he could not give any advice on the quality of wines, a Ms. Cobb, who was unable to help with salad dressing suggestions, and Mr. Weedon who said he had absolutely no bladder advice to impart.
