June 8 , 2014
The CIA posted their first "cheeky" tweet, as per the Wall Street Journal.
"We can neither confirm nor deny that this is our first tweet," it read. Reports suggest that the agency gained over 85k followers in about an hour and its first post was retweeted 70k times.
ABC News notes that CIA also had to secure its handle from an impersonator and filed a complaint to do so. Other agencies posted replies to its first tweet. "@CIA, if that was, in fact, your first tweet, welcome! If you change your mind later on, might we recommend http:// ow.ly/xlHwO," Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency tweeted.
