The CIA, one of the world's most secretive organisations, became a little more public on Friday after joining social media site Twitter.
The spy agency's debut tweet revealed a cryptic sense of humour, slying saying it could neither confirm or deny it was the CIA's first tweet.
Despite only posting a single brief message, the account gained more than 160,000 followers in the first few hours.
Since any number of fake CIA twitter accounts have sprung up over the years, some caution was in order.
The agency, tweeting with the handle @CIA, quickly confirmed in a news release that it had, in fact, established a presence on both Twitter and Facebook.
It quickly followed 25 other accounts, including Homeland Security and NASA.
