is an unintentional mistake made whilst texting, either sending the message to the wrong person or not noticing when predictive texting chooses the wrong word, often to embarrassing or very funny consequences.
a slip of the thumb is or perhaps an email sent by a handheld device. You might not notice when your predictive texting selects the wrong word – book instead of cool for example, or nun instead of mum! I have a Spanish friend 'Viki' V-I-K-I, and when I type in her name it comes out ugli, U-G-L-I. A well-known brand of vodka even comes out as poisoned if you’re not careful.
