Finance Ministry’s ‘covfefe moment’ on Twitter gets Internet LOL-ing

While a few users thought the goof-up was a "butt tweet", others thought the person behind the screen was inebriated, while others thought it must be a new kind of cess.

Not one but two tweets went out from the ministry’s official Twitter handle and left everyone in splits!

“Sawa we h we s see see,” that’s what the Union Ministry of Finance tweeted on Thursday afternoon. Now, there aren’t many who can claim to understand the intricacies of finance and economy, but this very cryptic tweet from the ministry’s Twitter handle has taken confusion right up to ‘covfefe’ levels.

Especially since this followed an equally confusing response to an article tweeted out by a leading English media organisation. Seemingly replying to a tweet on an article on how one person was arrested in Delhi for selling crackers despite the ban, @FinMinIndia wrote: “Ess”.

Your guess on what this could mean is as good as ours. We’d try asking our finance reporters what impact this tweet could have on the economy, but we’d be shooed away.

Especially now that both the tweets have been deleted with no explanation whatsoever. Which obviously means that the ever curious Tweeple of Twitterverse soon had their own interpretations along with a whole host of hours and memes. While a few users thought the goof-up was a “butt tweet”, others thought the person behind the screen was inebriated, while others thought it must be a new kind of cess.
