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.

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.”
