Verizon Twitter account hints at Verizon iPhone?

Seems like someone over at Verizon may have slipped up. It appears a Twitter user asked if Verizon getting the iPad could possibly be hinting at the release of a Verizon iPhone. Shockingly enough, whoever is behind the @VerizonCareers Twitter account actually responded back and said this -

"yes, that is the latest scoop".

This could just be a Verizon account acknowledging how widespread the rumor is, or playing a cruel joke on Twitter and Verizon iPhone supporters, or it could be an employee that isn't aware of the fact that putting internal information on Twitter is typically frowned upon. The tweet is still up and has not been deleted as of writing this.

Verizon getting the iPad is definitely a step in the right direction when it comes to Verizon earning the iPhone, but is this a bit of a stretch? What do you guys think?
