Twitter can't even celebrate Independence Day without misspelling the hashtag

Spellcheck those tweets, fam!Spellcheck those tweets, fam!Image: Digital First Media via Getty Images2016%2f09%2f16%2f8f%2fhttpsd2mhye01h4nj2n.cloudfront.netmediazgkymde1lza3.f09f1By Marcus Gilmer2018-07-04 17:09:15 UTC

Nothing quite says "America in 2018" quite like celebrating Independence Day on Twitter with a misspelled trending hashtag. 

Among those that have used the wrong hashtag on this patriotic holiday are the U.S. Air Force, the city of Boston, the Canadian Space Agency, and First Lady Melania Trump because of course. 

Credit where it's due: Melania at least caught the mistake and replaced the tweet with the correct spelling.

To be fair, Twitter seems to be autofilling the misspelled hashtag, "#IndependanceDay," which means all it really takes to spread this is a few misspellings, some carelessness and BOOM! You've got yourself a facepalm stew. 

That didn't stop the schadenfreude, though.

Oh, America, you've actually successfully gotten #IndependanceDay trending and nobody in the thread is noticing that "independence" IS SPELLED WRONG.
