Dave W. Smith is taking some of Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s tough day off her hands. But not by choice.
Smith, whose Twitter profile says he is from Silicon Valley, is receiving mean tweets intended for the outgoing chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee after the content of some internal committee emails were released by Wikileaks.
According to Smith, National Public Radio misprinted Wasserman Schultz’s Twitter handle, which is @DWStweets, as his: @DWS.
My day so far: NPR misprinted the twitter handle of a certain politician that many folks are very, very angry at. Hi, angry folks.

For the record, NPR corrected the misprint quickly. Now waiting for Twitter to act on the misdirection bug this uncovered.
