CIA Opens Twitter Account: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"They`re late to the party, but the spooks have finally joined Twitter.

At 1:49 pm ET on Friday, the Central Intelligence Agency sent its first-ever Twitter message, from a verified account with the simple handle of @CIA.


With characteristic secrecy, it said: We can neither confirm nor deny that this is our first tweet."


This is not a parody or fake account, Titter has given it a verified icon.

The agency has also opened official Facebook, Flickr and YouTube accounts; I`m spooked by the CIA`s infiltration of social media.

I might as well follow the CIA Twitter feed, since they probably (unofficially) already follow my Twitter account that frequently bashes the Obama administration.

Can we trust any information the CIA posts on Twitter? I don`t care if the CIA plasters its Twitter page with smiley emoticons, I ain`t buying the new friendly CIA.
