A POST from a Mexican Twitter user about his upcoming trip to Murcia has gone viral after it was mistakenly accompanied by a picture of a skyline in Shanghai, China.
“Next destination…Murcia, Spain,” the Tweet reads beneath the picture of the Asian city.
But anyone who is familiar with Murcia, China or even Europe more broadly will immediately spot the hash.

It appears Mexican Jean La Torre may have taken the mocking to heart based on his latest tweet.
“I wish my poems also had the same impact as this minor error I made.”
The message was accompanied by sad face emoticons. And La Torre received some caring responses which aimed to lift his spirits.
Ojala mis poemas tubieran tanta repercusion como este pequeño fallo q tuve… ???
