Social media has forever changed the ways we deal with and interact with public figures. It offers us a less filtered inside look into what goes inside of the mind of some of the most popular and powerful people on this planet. Some argue that it's too much power for these folks to wield, while many others welcome it to keep things in check.
President Trump is probably the greatest example of this so far. He has been active on Twitter for years and remained active throughout his campaign and his presidency on his personal account. A single tweet made by him will have thousands of responses within minutes, and ever since he took office each and every one has resulted in stories being written about what was being said.
Because he's the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump's tweets receive an extra level of scrutiny from the masses, and when something doesn't add up or make sense, the internet does their best to find out exactly what is going on.
His latest tweet took things to 11, as people struggled to find out what a new mystery word meant, if anything at all.
Trump deflected having to explain #Covfefe by asking us to answer for him.
When Trump tweeted: “Despite the constant negative press covfefe,” early Wednesday morning, nobody could make heads or tails of the mysterious arrangement of letters in the last word.
Was the president walking and texting at 12:06 am when he suddenly face-planted into a wall?
Is 'covfefe' code for something sinister? Twitter had so many questions, and they've responded with their own explanations.
The mystery tweet, that was never attributed to as a typo, became a sensational joke that was deleted six hours later, but not before it ratcheted over 127,000 retweets and more than 162,000 likes.
In its place, however, the president reinforced the mystery further by challenging us to a game.
Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe" ??? Enjoy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 31, 2017
However, the tweet just discouraged some from playing along with the president's reindeer games.
And there were those who were game for humoring Trump at taking sardonic guesses. The popular guess for #covfefe seemed to be coffee.
There was even a "Rosebud" reference from Citizen Kane's huge revelation at the film's conclusion.
I think "covfefe" might be Donald J. Trump's "rosebud."— haunted dog (@zandywithaz) May 31, 2017
He never promised he'd reveal the meaning of his typo. And what we're left with are those obsessed with finding out the truth. Until the next puzzling tweet, anyway.
