Vatican Offers Indulgence to Pope's Twitter followers?

One would hope this is a scam: Vatican offers indulgence to Pope's Twitter followers. I haven't found this story on Zenit yet, so I'm somewhat skeptical.

Hey James!

If someone asked me, I would answer that Twitter is not intended to be included in “the new means of social communication.” Also, the headline in that news story is susceptible to misunderstanding. An indulgence is “the remission before God of the temporal punishment due sins already forgiven as far as their guilt is concerned” (Indulgentarium Doctrina, Norm 1).

In Christ,
