LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — The mystery of the CIA grew a little bit larger Friday when the intelligence agency officially joined the Twitterverse.
The CIA sent out its first tweet Friday afternoon, and it was a thing of beauty.
We can neither confirm nor deny that this is our first tweet.— CIA (@CIA) June 6, 2014
The @CIA Twitter account was created Feb. 24 — how was that handle not already taken? — but waited until June 6 to tweet for the first time.
Despite its lack of 140-characters-or-less activity, the CIA is gaining Twitter followers by the thousands after its witty first tweet.
The CIA’s Twitter bio adds even more mystique: “We are the Nation’s first line of defense. We accomplish what others cannot accomplish and go where others cannot go.”
