We can neither confirm nor deny that this is our first tweet.
The Central Intelligence Agency joined Facebook and Twitter Friday, noting in a post on their website “CIA goes social.”
Their first tweet was even a joke!
In the press release announcing the accounts the CIA said they intended to have “tbt (Throwback Thursday) photos, reflections on intelligence history, and fun facts from the CIA World Factbook.”
This week, the CIA expanded its social media presence with the launch of official social media accounts on Twitter and Facebook.
Follow us on Twitter @CIA and on Facebook for the latest CIA updates, #tbt (Throwback Thursday) photos, reflections on intelligence history, and fun facts from the CIA World Factbook. You’ll also receive updates on CIA career postings and get the latest glimpse into CIA’s Museum—the best museum most people never get to see. Our social media expansion will put CIA.gov content right at your fingertips.
The launch expands CIA’s online presence, which already includes the Agency’s public website, CIA.gov and CIA.gov mobile, and official Flickr and YouTube accounts. In the coming weeks, look out for other CIA.gov enhancements, including live streaming capabilities via Ustream.
