“I AM NOT A FREAKING CRICKET MATCH”

Well, this is just unfortunate. A woman with the Twitter handle @theashes was mistaken for a popular cricket match of the same name, and has been inundated with Twitter messages from diehard cricket fans since Friday.

@theashes, it turns out, is the Twitter handle of a babysitter from Westfield, Massachusetts named Ashley Kerekes, whose Tweets, up until this point, have been primarily related to toddler sleeping habits.Since many of the fans incorrectly affixed an @theashes to their Tweets instead of #theashes, she began getting messages. A lot of them.
