Los Angeles: Frank Sinatra`s daughter Nancy has appealed to Twitter bosses to shut down an account on the micro-blogging site set up in her late father`s name.

Nancy asked her fans for help after learning the Twitter tag @ratpackfrank had been verified by website executives as an official account of the iconic singer.

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 unauthorised account of its `verified` status.

She wrote, "Attention @Twitter The account @ratpackfrank is not authorised and using my dad`s name Frank Sinatra without permission. Please unverify."

The `My Way` legend died in 1998.
