In his first week as the newly minted White House press secretary for President Donald Trump, Sean Spicer has already given the American people so much.

First, he gave us the demonstrably false soundbite claiming Trump's 2017 inauguration crowd was "the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period."

Then, there was the repetition of the president's own baffling belief that "millions" of people voted illegally in the 2016 presidential election.

And on Thursday morning, Spicer tweeted out the most precious gift of all: a string of seemingly random numbers and letters, which, people were quick to point out, looks an awful lot like his password.

Is it troubling to know one of the most visible and front-facing members of the Trump administration — who is literally tasked with controlling the flow of information from the White House to the rest of the world — might be careless enough to tweet out sensitive and potentially damaging information during his first week on the job? Who's to say, really. 

But Twitter users, for their part, had plenty of opinions:
