An accidental tweet is the modern day version of pocket-dialing, and the latest to fall victim to its misfortune is Labor politician Yvette Cooper.
K— Yvette Cooper (@Yvette Cooper) 1539280658.0
The MP for Normanton and Pontefract's tweet, reading simply “K", is hapless tweeting in its purest form – and no one understands that fine art better than her husband Ed Balls.
The former shadow chancellor's famous first tweet read simply “Ed Balls", and was enough to have a day named after him – Ed Balls Day.
Naturally then, it was he who lead the charge when it came to mocking his wife's Twitter woes.
Yvette, you’ve got to stop this pocket-tweeting. Believe me, it can get you into all sorts of trouble... https://t.co/FUNoEFnIk2— Ed Balls (@Ed Balls) 1539282380.0

It might not be worthy of an Yvette Cooper Day this time, but as a certain U.S. president will attest, it just goes to show covfefe.
