As far as post-Diwali hangovers go, the Ministry of Finance has a bit to worry about, with an inadvertent post capturing Twitter's imagination.
The Finance Ministry's Twitter handle replied to a News18 article posted on October 18 titled 'One apprehended in Delhi for selling crackers to people secretly'. It chose to reply to the handle with two tweets. One read "Sawa we h we s see see" and the other said "Ess".
Sawa we h we s see see— Ministry of Finance (@FinMinIndia) October 20, 2017
Ess— Ministry of Finance (@FinMinIndia) October 20, 2017
Here are the tweets again in-case the above posts are deleted.
Twitter users called it Finance Minister Arun Jaitley's covfefe moment, citing US President Donald Trump's tweets which social media had a fun time deciphering.
President Trump's incomplete, misspelled tweet in May this year read, "Despite the constant negative press covfefe."
The tweet unleashed a torrent of reactions from Twitter users, who tried to define the term.
Almost instantly after the President's tweet went out, meme's and jibes began flying around wondering what on earth could a 'covfefe' actually mean.
