President Trump Has A New Popular Tweet

Trump, who tweets from his iPhone, poked fun at the situation this morning asking his more than 30 million followers to figure out what covfefe means. "You're all laughing, but perhaps the real Twitter is the covfefe we make along the way", the Harry Potter author wrote, soon followed by a reply to one of her followers, "Try searching covfeef or covfif".

Merriam-Webster, the famed official dictionary with a notably snarky Twitter feed, also got in on the action, albeit briefly.

Donald Trump seemed poised to go on another Twitter rant, but it ended in "covfefe".

But on Tuesday night (May 30), the tweeter-in-chief set the service on fire with one of his most confounding, freakish messages.

But Corey Lewandowski is declined to say whether he's been contacted by Trump or anyone else about a return engagement as the president considers an overhaul of his communications team. But none of those sound right ("Despite the constant negative press, Coven is the best season of American Horror Story"?). Because, you see, "covfefe" was no mere grammatical error on POTUS's part.

The ambiguous tweet stayed online for more than five hours, gaining thousands more retweets than Trump's other recent messages before being removed shortly after 5:30 a.m. Trump then sent another message to address what many people thought was a typo.

Trump's tweet is the latest example of his ability to draw attention on social media - and keep the public guessing as to the meaning behind many of his remarks. "Enjoy!" he tweeted, in an unusual display of self-depreciating humor.

The dictionary's official Twitter account routinely goes after politicians and celebrities when they use words or phrases that are incorrect, confusing, or nonsensical.

Team Twitter already had gone into overdrive trying to fill in the blanks, floating both silly and serious scenarios.

He scolded celebrity Kathy Griffin for a video that showed what looked like Trump's severed head: "My children, especially my 11-year-old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this".
