The CIA Joins Twitter and Youtube

Posted on June 6, 2014

It's official. The CIA has joined Twitter. The agency has also launched a Facebook page and a Youtube channel. The agency's first tweet was, "We can neither confirm nor deny that this is our first tweet" which is pretty hilarious.

The agency explained its formal foray into social media, "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."

They had us at Throwback Thursday photos.
