Covfefe: When a typo goes viral


"Despite the constant negative press covfefe", read the US leader's short tweet sent early Wednesday.

At 6:09 a.m. ET, POTUS followed up with a trollish ditty, one that attempts to pass off "covfefe" in I meant to do that! fashion.

The tweet began with the fragment, "Despite the constant negative press covfefe", and stopped at that, not to be deleted for six more hours. Though the meaning or objective of the tweet is yet to be covered, his tweet gave the Twitterati, exactly what they need.

What do you do about a problem like covfefe? "Enjoy!" he tweeted, in an unusual display of self-depreciating humor.

Hours after deleting the tweet, Trump was back on the platform with a surprising post. If I had to guess - as this game's latest victim - I'd say "covfefe" means "coffee".

Not for the first time, a Trump tweet has lit up the internet. Oxford Dictionaries tweeted that "covfefe" was its coinage of the day, and went one step further to solicit possible definitions for the word.

"What makes me saddest is that I know I'll never write anything funnier than #covfefe", Jimmy Kimmel tweeted as a flurry of responses hit the web.

Mind you, we're talking about assorted Media Twitter here, so it goes without saying that none of these memes are good or amusing.

The dictionary publisher Merriam-Webster has been known to correct Trump's misspellings and mis-use of words on Twitter.
