Nancy Sinatra tells Twitter to close account in father's name
Frank Sinatra's daughter Nancy has reached out to Twitter execs to shut down a blog set up in her late father's name.
Nancy Sinatra appealed to her fans for help on Friday after learning the Twitter tag @ratpackfrank had been verified by website executives as an official account of her father's estate.
In a desperate plea, she tweeted, "Friends, how do we get rid of the phony but verified Frank Sinatra? That is NOT my dad. Help."
After receiving advice from tech-savvy followers, she then sent a message to Twitter officials to strip the unauthorized account of its "verified" status.

Frank Sinatra died in 1998.
