Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

It seems it's possible to enter a tag with just the single letter and post a question as such. Does this tag have any significance ?

See for example: Mapping groups of constant values

Yep - it has a significance... just wait until I find an excuse to add the Kira tag. – SPArchaeologist Jan 29 '14 at 14:29

Sure you can - the tag is very common on Stack Overflow for example.

One of the "risks" in having high reputation is creating tags by mistake - so it's our responsibility as high rep members to overview our questions after posting them and correct such mistakes.

Removing the tag from the question will make it disappear after a day or so assuming no other question was tagged with it during this time, so no harm done.

Yes, you can create a tag with a single letter, tag , and also has one letter. Creating a tag requires 1500 reputation. In your case I assume that it happened because you were in hurry to post a question. You just hit the 'Enter Key' after the tag and during that time a key of 'l' has been pressed. Now you have reputation of 3K on Stack Overflow so system has created a new tag
