Your favorite Social Media watchdog, Opus Communication has something fascinating to share ! Guess which notorious intelligence company has joined Facebook & twitter? It is none other than the ICI !
According to grapevine, the CIA has existed on social media ever since the latter’s conception to uncover global trends and track evil-doers. But it officially joined Twitter and Facebook on Friday!
The agenda of the spy agency is to interact and convey message directly to the public, but its first Twitter message, sent out shortly before 2 p.m. EDT (1800 GMT), and did not indicate there would be major revelations.
It said simply: “We can neither confirm nor deny that this is our first tweet.”
The lack of content did not dampen interest: in less than 90 minutes, the CIA account had nearly 84,000 followers, and that number was climbing fast.
Some on Twitter had fun with the announcement:
“@CIA how does it feel to be followed for once?” replied one Twitter user.
The Central Intelligence Agency has long had a public website, and it also has official accounts on YouTube and the photo-sharing site Flickr.
“By expanding to these platforms (Facebook and Twitter), CIA will be able to more directly engage with the public and provide information on CIA’s mission, history, and other developments,” CIA Director John Brennan said in a statement.
Some of the items to be posted include artifacts from the CIA’s museum (which is non-public) and updates to “World Factbook,” which covers international leaders, maps and similar such information.
