Trump's use of 'covfefe' has social media atwitter

No one is quite sure what "covfefe" - the typo issued by President Donald Trump early Wednesday morning that quickly went viral - means.

The tweet which was retweeted 65,000 times and liked by 80,000 followers was this: "Despite the constant negative press "covfefe".

This was followed by a tweet in which Trump tried to play it cool and make it appear as if he had meant to use this word, saying "Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe"???". Though the meaning or goal of the tweet is yet to be covered, his tweet gave the Twitterati, exactly what they need. As of Wednesday morning, covfefe was a top trending term on Twitter from Perth to Delhi, and from Mexico City to Paris.

But instead he tweeted "covfefe".

Officer: "Do you know why I pulled you over?"

With that, Trump's twitter feed went silent for the next five and half hours.

The odd post that referred to the meaning of a "word" went viral within hours.

At 0830 GMT Trump's "covfefe" tweet had more than 105,000 retweets and had been shared 35,000 times, according to Twitter figures. There is nothing unusual about this, given Trump's penchant for late-night tweets that often result in widespread controversy.

Many @realDonaldTrump tweets during the trip were composed by his social media director, Dan Scavino, who also runs the official @POTUS account.

Melania Trump says it was "simply wrong" for celebrity Kathy Griffin to appear in a video holding what looked like President Donald Trump's bloody, severed head.
