CIA Twitter reaches pinnacle, posts about Tupac

SINCE joining Twitter a month ago, the CIA has acted like any brand or government body trying to shake off a stuffy reputation would and blasted its feed with dad jokes and hashtags.

A new low was reached last night though when it announced it would answer "5 of the top questions" from Twitter users using the annoying hashtag #twitterversary.

By "top questions" they obviously meant flippant, pop culture-related ones, a serious answer about an A-12 OXCART reconnaissance aircraft sitting uncomfortably amongst ones about Ellen DeGeneres, selfies and, bizarelly, Tupac Shakur.

"No, we don't know where Tupac is," the CIA tweeted, which some took offence to, given that the rapper is very clearly dead.

The tweet attracted over 93,000 retweets, a couple of hundred thousand short of its very first message: "We can neither confirm nor deny that this is our first tweet."

Meanwhile, Tupac's last words were revealed last month by a police officer who was called to the scene of the rapper's murder. Yes, they're exactly what you'd expect.
