CIA gets cute on Twitter

Washington (CNN) – The Central Intelligence Agency has been on Twitter for all of a month now. And it seems whoever is doing the official tweeting is a bit of a cut-up, out to show that the CIA is, hands down, the funniest American agency to ever overthrow a foreign government.

Take a look at some of the CIA's tweets for its one-month "twitterversy."

Regarding one of the greatest mysteries of our time, the CIA says: "No, we don't know where Tupac is."

Yes, but what do your files say about Biggie? And were you, in some way, behind the East-Coast-West-Coast rap wars of the 1990's?

CIA, you are definitely the funniest spy ring to ever conduct enhanced interrogations at secret black sites outside the U.S.

Comedian Ellen Degeneres, at one point, tweeted out that she hoped the CIA would follow her. You know, on Twitter, not outside her house.

The CIA tweeted back: "Sorry for not following you back, @TheEllenShow. But if you visit us maybe we can take a selfie?"

Seriously CIA, if I had to name a funnier agency that also conducted mind control experiments with LSD, I'd be at a total loss.

Clearly on a roll, the CIA also tweeted out: "No, we don't know your password, so we can't send it to you. #sorrynotsorry."

Of course you don't, CIA. We'd have to talk to the NSA for that.

The CIA Twitter account, proving that just because you spend all day gathering intelligence on terrorists bent on killing us, you don't have to be so serious about it.

Follow @CIA right now, before the jokester tweeting under the handle crosses the line and gets fired or reassigned.
