We can neither confirm nor deny that this is our first tweet.

The CIA has made a surprisingly light-hearted foray into social media with a new Twitter account.
The unexpected move led many to suspect that @CIA was yet another parody account, especially after its post reading: “We can neither confirm nor deny that this is our first tweet.”
But it seems that spies have a covert sense of humour after all and will be sharing “unclassified” content.
Within hours, it had been re-tweeted nearly 200,000 times and the account had more than 330,000 followers.
