Oh, and check out the graphics. Thanks to InstaPundit for the pointer.

UPDATE: It appears from that the Twitter feed might not be North Korea's idea; according to the story, "a KCNA spokesperson replied: 'We do not permit to appear KCNA on Twitter at all.'" (The story is about a different Twitter feed, but presumably this statement would apply to the feed I point to as well; KCNA is the "Korean Central News Agency," a North Korean government organ.)

The feed described in the Forbes story used actual KCNA headlines, and the one I pointed to has items that have that authentic KCNA ring. (I'd read some KCNA items in the past, so that's why the Twitter feed seemed authentic.) But it is likely that this particular feed is intentional parody, as opposed to the KCNA site, which is unintentional self-parody.

FURTHER UPDATE: Hoaxer identifies himself. Good job!
