Twitter users are painfully aware of the lack of an edit button. If you have a typo in your tweet, you have to decide if you want to leave it or delete and send again. However, if you’re the President and have over 31 million followers, it doesn’t matter if half of them are bots because Twitter always has receipts. Especially when a nonsensical word like covfefe gets tweeted out.
This all started when Trump tweeted the following from his personal account @realDonaldTrump, “Despite the constant negative press covfefe,” at 12:06 AM. And that was it. There wasn’t a follow-up tweet to explain covfefe or another tweet with corrected spelling. Six hours passed before the tweet was finally deleted, but by then Twitter users had a blast with the typo and made it the most tweeted tweet since Inauguration Day.

Not sure what a word means or how to pronounce it? You should probably consult a dictionary.
Or maybe not.

Don't worry, Urban Dictionary is up to the task.
However, Jimmy Kimmel may want to look for a new joke writer.

Trump ultimately decided to have some fun with his typo and asked if anyone could figure out the true meaning.
Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe" ??? Enjoy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 31, 2017
Maybe it’s an illness?
Or the meme that keeps on giving?
Even though Sean Spicer claims that Trump knows what covfefe is, we’re going to believe that it’s the meme that keeps on giving.
