John Stamos Causes a Twitter Stir in Canada

A second-year psychology student at Toronto’s Ryerson University is over the moon – not to mention now managing multiple media interview requests – thanks to a couple of unexpected direct tweets from actor John Stamos.

The Toronto Star‘s Sarah Millar broke the story yesterday of how the actor came to the rescue of Natalie Léger (@nataliediamond, pictured), a 19-year-old who took to the micro-blogging service to bemoan her inability to get tickets to a Thursday April 7th performance in Niagara Falls by the Beach Boys.
