This month I've devised a new simple type of maze puzzle, called a Tweetmaze.

What's a Tweetmaze? It's a one-dimensional Jumping Maze consisting of a string of decimal digits, so named because you don't need to draw a grid; you can send it as a string of digits in a text message or tweet.

For example, here's a 16-digit Tweetmaze:


You start from the first digit on the left, and the aim is to find a route to the last digit on the right in the shortest number of jumps. The number on each square tells you how far you can jump from that square, left or right, to the next square. So, for example, from the 7 on the starting square you can jump to the first 2 to its right.


Here's the answer to the Tweetmaze given above:
