When Kim Kardashian tweets, the world stops to fave and RT. So it’s no surprise that when her daughter North West sent out her first tweet via Kim K’s phone, the populace was ready to erupt with an “omg!” and emojis—even if the post was pure gibberish.

Late Sunday night, Kim tweeted what first appeared to be a butt-tweet or extremely intoxicated correspondence: just a random string of letters and a few symbols.

But a few hours later, the Kardashian realized that something was up and needed to clear the air about the jumble of characters.

Now, this isn’t the first time that North has supposedly taken her parents’ phone and run amuck with the apps. Kanye West has tweeted about being upset over in-app purchases because of North buying all the upgrades in games to win. And remember that time North “accidentally” uploaded an old photo of her mom in a bikini to Instagram? Kids these days, just so immersed in technology. 

People loved North’s first tweet and were vying for the youngster’s attention. They also had a field day with jokes about getting North to cause even more trouble.

Could there be a hidden message within “jhjhh’/” that we just aren’t seeing? Maybe she’s just practicing her cryptic tweets in preparation for a rivalry with Jaden Smith. Either way, we’re just waiting until North has her own Twitter to keep us updated on all of Saint’s shenanigans
