The world may never know what White House press secretary Sean Spicer was thinking when he tweeted a series of numbers and letters that strangely resembled passwords early Thursday morning. Though they were deleted shortly after being sent, Twitter users took notice of the mysterious tweets, leaving many to wonder just exactly what they meant.

At 8:42 a.m., Spicer tweeted the first series of numbers and letters, which many likened to a password. It happened again at approximately 10 a.m., this time reading “Aqenbpuu.” Snopes reports that it’s unclear what the number/letter combinations actually were, however, many speculated that they may have been passwords or simply pocket tweets.

Others took a far more sinister route, speculating that Spicer was instead sending out distress signals, sharing nuclear launch codes or using smoke and mirrors to distract from far more pressing issues. Gizmodo warned, however, not to try to log in to Spicer’s account if the tweets were, in fact, passwords. That’s illegal and would land you in hot water.

At today’s press conference, Spicer discussed Trump’s concerns over “widespread voter fraud” and the executive orders Trump has signed since being inaugurated. He has still yet to address his own faux pas by tweeting—this time intentionally.
