Oh, finally! The Associated Press to the rescue! Finally, the confusion, the fixation: it’s all over.
AP has provided a pronunciation guide and a definition for today’s buzzword:
Covfefe (cuv-fey-fey) noun: A sure sign that President Donald Trump has regained control of his Twitter account.
For those living under a rock, here’s a recap: at 12:06 a.m. Trump gifted us a lovely little Twitter gem:
And then, radio silence. Not another word from our tweeter-in-chief. Until 5:48 a.m., when the tweet was suddenly taken from us, save for the millions that screenshot the bizarre tweet and can forever cherish it.

Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe" ??? Enjoy!

Well, Trump did say he has the best words.
