NSA posts cryptic tweets to seek codebreakers

  • The NSA is seeking future codebreakers by posting coded tweets, as per the Washington Post. One of the mysterious tweets by the agency reads "tpfccdlfdtte pcaccplircdt dklpcfrp?qeiq lhpqlipqeodf gpwafopwprti izxndkiqpkii krirrifcapnc dxkdciqcafmd vkfpcadf."

    The actual message says - "Want to know what it takes to work at NSA? Check back each Monday in may as we explore careers essential to protecting our nation," the NBC reports, adding that the cryptic message could be solved in a couple of seconds using an app but it would take about 30 minutes for someone using their brain.

    An NSA spokesman said it's their technique to recruit the "best and the brightest."
