Trump's 'covfefe' lights up internet


"Despite the constant negative press covfefe", the president wrote shortly after midnight. "Enjoy!" The original tweet has gone viral although it was removed from the website after approximately six hours.

There were few serious tweets in response to the mysterious "covfefe", but there did appear to be some concern about his well-being, given the silence after that tweet.

He stoked suspense about whether he'll pull the US out of an global climate change agreement: "I will be announcing my decision on the Paris Accord over the next few days". There is nothing unusual about this, given Trump's penchant for late-night tweets that often result in widespread controversy. They've gone back to bed. It wasn't long before the tweet was widely circulated online, with the typo trending hours after the tweet first went live. Imagine waking up to realize that dictionary searches for "covfefe" have increased exponentially overnight, despite the fact that Trump probably just meant to type "coverage".

For a few hours, while most of us were likely sleeping, things went insane. Instead, Melania Trump 's husband undoubtedly went to watch a game on TV, dropping her smartphone on the living room table. Later he deleted it, and posted another tweet that teased the "true meaning" of the mystery word. And others tried to figure out what it meant.

Although they lost the ODI series to England 2-1, they are favorites to make it through to the semi-finals. If you look at our dismissals today, South Africa didn't let us get away, sometimes you have to sit in.

In a post on his Twitter account Wednesday morning, Trump said, "My children, especially my 11-year-old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this".

And the Merriam-Webster dictionary didn't even attempt to define the term.

One word was close to breaking the internet on Wednesday morning: "covfefe".
