THE popular mobile game Words With Friends has added one of the internet's most popular typos in recent days - "covfefe".
The mysterious term that President Donald Trump tweeted has spread like wildfire on social media and the Scrabble-like multiplayer game has jumped aboard, defining the word as "the amount and quality of reporting when autocorrect fails you at 3am". "Covfefe" was born on Twitter just after midnight on Wednesday last week when the president wrote about "constant negative press covfefe", prompting jokes from the likes of Jimmy Kimmel and Hillary Clinton. Dozens of suggested definitions have since been submitted to the Urban Dictionary website, which crowdsources slang terms.
