Words With Friends, the popular mobile games that closely resembles Scrabble, added President Donald Trump's tweet typo "covfefe" to the game's accepted vocabulary list. And then Trump's Twitter account went silent for several hours. Around 0945 GMT, the mysterious tweet was deleted. Trump later poked fun at the typo: "Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe"???".

He deleted it at 5.50 a.m., and by then, it was re-tweeted more than 100,000 times, making it the career best for Mr. Trump who routinely announces policy and snipes at critics at home and overseas in fewer than 140 characters. It said: "Despite the constant negative press covfefe".

He blew past follow-up questions about the meaning of covfefe.

One user joked that "covfefe" is already a popular name for babies in states that voted for Trump.

"Never thought I'd see the day when Trump would make me laugh", @aki23_6 wrote the same day.

He blamed cancer for Allman's death . " Gregg struggled with many health issues over the past several years", the statement added. Allman's music career record is mainly based on Allman Brothers Band that produced hits such as Ramblin' Man and Midnight Rider .

The New York City litigator was retained by Trump last week to represent the president in all matters concerning the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Republican strategist Liz Mair, by contrast, saw it as a way for the White House to create a distraction from negative stories about the president. Trump's tweet came at 12:06 a.m. The White House has claimed that the deleted tweets are being recorded, but it hasn't proved that publicly.

Within minutes of the tweet being published "covfefe" was trending nationwide.

Earlier on Wednesday, Clinton - who refused to let such a good opportunity to mock her formal presidential candidate rival - also cracked a joke about the misspelled tweet while speaking at the Code Conference in Los Angeles.
