Kolton Miller doesn't use his Twitter account often.
Yet, the newest Raider is getting all sorts of attention – both positive and negative – on the social media site.
Oakland selected the offensive lineman with the 15th pick in the NFL draft Thursday. He made a rare visit to Twitter to celebrate the occasion.
Been some time since I've tweeted but what better time than now! So hyped to join #RaiderNation @Raiders. Check out my first @NFL trading card with #PaniniInstant #NFLDraft https://t.co/fBNCGtOWZb pic.twitter.com/bsHNGCI3Xd— Kolton (@kolton_miller) April 27, 2018
"Been some time since I've tweeted but what better time than now! So hyped to join #RaiderNation," he tweeted.
But why so much negativity surrounding Miller? An unverified Twitter account bearing his name (@KoltonMiller) and a profile photo of Miller in his UCLA uniform gained wide attention Thursday.
He received congratulations from the official NFL Twitter account, as well as Raiders offensive tackle Kelechi Osemele.
@KoltonMiller welcome to the room baby!!! Excited to work with you— Kelechi Osemele (@KOseven0) April 27, 2018
The user played up the news during the draft.
Some people seemed upset about tweets supporting President Donald Trump.

Kolton Miller begins with a K— Barry McCockiner (@Sp0rtsTalkJo3) April 27, 2018
KKK begins with a K
The Raiders just drafted a white supremacist.
But a quick look at the account's past retweets show "happy birthday" wishes on Nov. 3, 2017, a day after the unverified @KoltonMiller tweeted "18 tomorrow". The 22-year-old former UCLA player's birthday is Sept. 2.
The account, created in February 2010, had nearly 2,000 followers as of 9:30 p.m., while the verified @Kolton_Miller account had about 1,200 – and only eight tweets despite being active since November 2013.
Raiders quarterback Derek Carr wasn't fooled. Carr found Miller's real account and welcomed his new teammate.
