Please let this be genuine.

Mashable reports twitter user @Gequeoman tweeted a crayoned letter to Santa that replaced an old-fashioned list of presents with a long URL linking to Amazon.com (the kid obviously hasn't heard of Tiny URL).

Mashable's Neha Prakash writes "the letter's source hasn't been verified".

If this is a cynical piece of fudgery by Amazon, heaven help the goose who thought it up. If it's genuine, then it's a great sign of the times. And a great piece of viral advertising for the on-line giant.

Hope you're on Amazon Santa!

Send in the drones.
