From this http://arxiv.org/abs/1411.1854
And $$E=\hbar\omega$$ We get $$E=2mc^2$$

Which is twice the relativistic energy. Why is that ?

At the top of the second page, they define zitter:
The ω which you plug into the equations is the zitter frequency, which is why your relativistic energy expression is wrong.
