A Porn Artist Called 'Albo' Is Being Tagged In Tweets Meant For Albanese

It wouldn't be an Australian news cycle without some poor foreigner being tagged in some inexplicable tweets.

Today, it's Anthony Albanese, the man almost certain to become the next Labor leader. As you're probably aware, Albanese also goes by "Albo", because this is Australia and we've never seen a name we didn't like to shorten.

You know who else goes by Albo? An erotic artist from Italy.

Compare the pair.

On your left, is Labor MP Anthony Albanese. On your right, is Italian erotic artist Albo.

Erotic artist Albo usually likes to post extremely NSFW cartoons, which you can view HERE. His Twitter handle is @Albo, which is very close to @AlboMP.

You're probably starting to see the problem here.

Since Aussie Albo became a key figure in the news -- what with candidates entering, and then dropping out of, the race for Labor leader -- the Italian Albo has been tagged in a number of tweets.

And it looks like he's had enough.

"Hundreds of mentions and all for an Australian politicians whose name is Albo too," Italian Albo tweeted.

"[His] username is slightly different but lots of Australians keep mentioning me instead of him."

10 daily has reached out to erotic artist Albo, but have yet to hear back. 10 daily has also reached out to future Labor leader Albo about this topic... but don't really expect to hear back.

Hopefully Albo (the non-MP) can find solace with the several people wrongly tagged in tweets intended for Home Affairs minister Peter Dutton.
