At 1:49 pm ET on Friday, the Central Intelligence Agency sent its first-ever Twitter message, from a verified account with the simple handle of @CIA.

With characteristic secrecy, it said: "We can neither confirm nor deny that this is our first tweet."

LOL! I can see it now. Every tweet will include: "We'll look into it."

How about "If you read/follow this Tweet we will have to kill you".
