Donald Trump's 'covfefe' Tweet breaks the internet

Anything that Donald Trump does makes it to the headlines. And his Twitter timeline is no different. Now, his latest "covfefe" tweet is getting attention but for the all wrong reasons.

When Trump tweeted, "Despite the constant negative press covfefe," the mysterious post consumed Twitter, mostly with humorous speculation on the meaning of "covfefe," which is generally assumed to be a typo of the intended word "coverage."

The London Independent wondered if Trump's keyboard might have been randomly stuck, noting that the iPhone -- the brand used by the President -- doesn't auto-correct the word "covfefe" because it's not similar enough to any other real word. There's even a conspiracy theory circulating which claims that Google translates "covfefe" as "Soviet."

Soon after, in typical American tradition, “covfefe” T-shirts were being sold online.

After about six hours of going viral, the US President’s mysterious tweet was finally deleted. Later Trump himself joined the fun as he tweeted: “Who can figure out the true meaning of ‘covfefe’ ??? Enjoy!”

According to some reports, the fact that the tweet was deleted might be against the law as the President's communications are required to be preserved, and the White House has been instructed by the National Archives that it must "capture and preserve all tweets that the President posts… including those that are subsequently deleted." Later, the White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer stepped in and said ‘covfefe’ wasn’t a typo and that Trump knew “exactly what he meant.”

The mystery continues with the world still baffled by this tweet.
