Social media rushes to define Trump's 'covfefe' tweet

01 June 2017, 01:26 | Stacy Allen

In the early hours of Wednesday morning, Donald Trump sent out a tweet.

When he was told earlier this year not to like Twitter, the U.S. president is yet to its own commands and tweets (very) regularly on all possible subjects of its foreign policy to the supposed mediocrity of his opponent.

The dictionary publisher Merriam-Webster has been known to correct Trump's misspellings and mis-use of words on Twitter.

The President's Twitter feed was largely quiet during his recent trip overseas, but hours after returning home, he unleashed a social media blast that felt like a pent-up release of fury that had been simmering over the nine days of his debut foreign tour.

In somewhat related news, the Trump administration is trying to roll back coverage (not "covfefe") on a "federal rule that requires most employers to cover birth control in their health insurance plans at no cost to women".


"Despite the constant negative press covfefe". When asked in the past about other Trump tweets, White House spokesman Sean Spicer has said the posts speak for themselves. But I think we have an even bigger problem on our hands: how do you say "covfefe?". "Enjoy!" he tweeted, in an unusual display of self-deprecating humour.

In January, a few days after Trump took office, I wrote about how the president metabolizes all criticism and conflict surrounding him as entertainment.

Mind you, we're talking about assorted Media Twitter here, so it goes without saying that none of these memes are good or amusing. But the tweet was not deleted until shortly before 6 a.m. - more than five hours after the fumbled initial thought, and after more than 127,000 retweets.

Of course, if Twitter just allowed everyone to edit their own tweets, we may not have this type of problem.

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