Australian Mike Duffy getting Tweets aimed at our Mike Duffy!

The Mike Duffy trial was a top trending topic on Twitter across Canada Thursday, with tens of thousands of tweets from journalists, politicos, and everyday citizens alike. After Duffy's acquittal on 31 charges of bribery, fraud, and breach of trust, some people took the time to tweet their congratulations, or their disappointment and disapproval, to Mike Duffy.
There was only one problem. Senator Mike Duffy isn't on Twitter and the recipient of those tweets has never been to Canada.
Mike Duffy is an Australian reporter with Seven News, based out of Sydney. The two share a journalistic background and a similar haircut - something the Australian Duffy enjoyed mentioning - and the Down Under Duffy says he couldn't help but be amused by the whole affair.
