Today I learned that you press ctrl + t to flip characters in your terminal. 😲

I probably won't remember this shortcut, but I googled around and discovered that t can also be used to toggle words with alt + t.

And this makes two toggle commands! Maybe this will stick... 🤞

I only tested these command shortcuts in iTerm and the default terminal on macOS. It might be that they won't work on your machine. 🤷‍♂️
