The post managed to get more than £11,000 to support a Syrian refugee pictured selling pens in Beirut, The Mirror reported.
Activist Gissur was flooded with requests to help the man and so Gissur, based in Norway, announced he was going to try to find him.
He launched a Twitter account named #BuyPens and he was soon contacted by a person who claimed that he has seen this man around his house.
Incredibly, twenty-four hours later the man and his daughter were identified as single dad-of-two Abdul and his daughter Reem, four and a half.
They are reportedly from the notorious Yarmouk refugee camp in Damascus, Syria.
