Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have left it aside, but Elle insinuated that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West could be next?

The magazine surprised its 6 million followers on Twitter on Thursday with what appeared to be exclusive news about the reality and rapper's relationship, sending Twitterverse to overdrive.

But people who were looking for the juicy details of the supposed division (which is not true, by the way) were directed to a voter registration page for whenweallvote.org when they clicked on the link.

Similary, Tim Cigelske he tweeted an equally attractive link that offers details behind the broken commitment of Grande and Davidson: "Wow, I can not believe that this is the reason why Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson split up."

The result was the same. The people who clicked on the link were directed to vote.org, where it says "Register to vote, this will take 2 minutes."

The click-bait scheme has appeared to spread on Twitter, with several imitations appearing online. Some users have responded positively.

@LydiaBurrell gave Elle "congratulations" for the trick, and added: "You have me with this one!"

"Since I am a good porter, I registered and in November I will do it for the first time," continued the Twitter user.

In response to Cigelske's tweet, @Btweentwolions shared a photo of his completed voter registration application: "A good burn deserves to be recognized well played."

Another user of social networks acknowledged that they registered to vote as 2018 as possible: "I have to admit, I registered to vote through a tweet that I thought was about the breakup of Ariana and Pete, you have me, Twitter."

Others were not very happy with the Twitter schemes.

@BubbaAtkinson said that fake news "is not smart". "It's taking advantage of the situation, there are smarter ways to do it without being in a climate where trust in the media is crazy," he continued.

@ JakeJake_91 agreed: "That is not ethical or appropriate, I am in favor of voting efforts, but this is misleading and fuels the fire of" false news "…"
