Careful what you say, because the CIA are now on Twitter.
And they opened their account with what could well be the best first tweet of all time.
Here it is, in all its glory:
We can neither confirm nor deny that this is our first tweet.
— CIA (@CIA) June 6, 2014
“We can neither confirm nor deny that this is our first tweet,” wrote @CIA on Friday, June 6th. Not bad, eh? Certainly, it’s a very unusual stance to take for an oh-so-serious government agency. Which has to be a good thing, I guess. Right?
Either way, Twitter seemed to enjoy it – the missive has been retweeted more than 275,000 times.
PS. The CIA are also active on Facebook now, too. Mind your step.
