Pregnant? Lindsay Lohan? Internet scoffs

It didn't take long for the tweet to ping around the world.

"Its official. Pregnant..." said the three simple words.

But coming from the verified Twitter account of a troubled actress whose every move elicits intense scrutiny, they were enough to send the Internet into a tizzy.

Shortly after the tweet appeared on @lindsaylohan, it became a worldwide trending topic. Within an hour, it had been retweeted more than 9,000 times.

Was it an April Fool's joke?

Very likely.

It was, after all, 10:35 p.m. April 1 on the Pacific Coast when it was posted.

But that didn't stop the snickering.

Some poked fun at her well-publicized battle with booze.

Others just couldn't contain their (faux) surprise.

Then, there were those who thought that if true, it could actually be a wonderful thing for Lohan.

The actress has  spent 250 days in five rehab facilities since January 2007, including one long court-ordered stint after a failed drug test.

She has appeared in court at least 21 times before four Los Angeles judges who have now found her in violation of probation six times and sentenced her to a total of nine months in jail.

And she has spent about two weeks behind bars in six trips to the Los Angeles County jail, served 35 days under house arrest and worked about 67 days of community service at the county morgue.

She is dating Avi Snow, the guitarist with City of the Sun.

What did he tweet about? A tour stop in Missouri.

      You must be on the east coast. Specifically, a New Yorker, am I right? Only New Yorkers (and some Jersey-ites) are so full of themselves as to think that when the day ends where they are, it is over everywhere else, too.

      The article SAID it was STILL Aoril 1 on the west coast, when she tweeted, genius.

    Nothing less than a ploy to try and stay out of jail. Or a publicity stunt.

    Either way... Total failure.

    In preparation for it not being a joke, the California Dept of Child Protective Services was interviewing for 50 new staff members just to handle the Lohan baby.

    –looking at her picture-

    I think it is risky for women in their 50's to start having children.
