Ask Hanna For Cash: Twitter User Wants To Give Away $23 Million, Is #AskHannaForCash Real?

Ask Hanna For Cash has been blowing up on Twitter after a user reportedly decided to give away her $62 million fortune via the microblogging site, with the hashtag #AskHannaForCash trending rapidly.

The unknown philanthropist has started a frenzy on the site, with thousands of re-tweets, but many seem to believe that it’s all a hoax.

The Twitter user @princessthot got the trend started with a tweet on Saturday where she said she wanted to give away her fortune. She then included a screenshot of a Paypal account with more than $23 million and a promise to send $1,000 to the first 10,000 people who re-tweeted her message.

The user hinted that the Ask Hanna For Cash idea was a way of getting back at her father.

First 10k people to retweet get 1k each, f**k my dad and his manufacturing company.

Though many seemed doubtful that Ask Hanna For Cash is real, other users tweeted messages of thanks, which @princessthot seemed to soak up.

From there she seemed to up the stakes, offering larger gifts to those who re-tweeted #AskHannaForCash.

The story got even stranger as the night went on, and doubts grew. The user admitted that she is only 16 years old, and ranted against a news reporter who tried to get a comment on what she was doing.

@princessthot later said police had come to her door and arrested her father.

There is still no indication if Ask Hanna For Cash is real or not, but that hasn’t slowed the number of people re-tweeting #AskHannaForCash and hoping for the best. But it seems that even if there is a 16-year-old philanthropist out there making people’s dreams come true, the fact that she’s stealing it from her father’s PayPal account means the transactions might not hold up. We’ll have to wait and see.
