A gibberish tweet from the US Strategic Command sent Twitter into a frenzy searching for some hidden meaning.

On Monday, the official Twitter account sent out the message: “;l;;gmlxzssaw.” The tweet immediately went viral, with much speculation as to why the body responsible for America's nuclear forces would send such a message.

Some on social media joked that Stratcom had accidentally leaked America's nuclear codes, while the QAnon crowd which believes numerous conspiracy theories claimed it was a secret code.

Stratcom eventually deleted the post, saying: “Apologizes [sic] for any confusion. Please disregard this post.”

The organization then revealed that the gibberish message was the result of a toddler being alone with a computer linked to the Stratcom Twitter account.

“The Command’s Twitter manager, while in telework status, momentarily left the Command’s Twitter account open and unattended,” Stratcom told the Daily Dot. “His very young child took advantage of the situation and started playing with the keys and unfortunately, and unknowingly, posted the tweet.”

“Absolutely nothing nefarious occurred, i.e., no hacking of our Twitter account. The post was discovered and notice to delete it occurred telephonically.”
