The internet is safe no longer. On Friday, the Central Intelligence Agency, better known to all as the CIA, joined the social media phenomenon that is twitter, and they certainly did their best to make a good first impression while poking fun at themselves a bit.
We can neither confirm nor deny that this is our first tweet.

Of course, it didn’t take long for everyone to find out the an official, verified account for one of the most maligned government agencies in the country existed, and just a few hours after it was born, the account’s mentions exploded with some hilarious content.

The @CIA is on Twitter? Well, I mean, they have an official account instead of just sifting through our stuff in private? Why??

Can’t wait for the @CIA to send the occasional tweet telling us how much their feed is worth or how they easily lost 15 lbs.

There are tons more where this came from, including one from myself where I asked the CIA the hardest hitting question in sports.
