CIA Launches New Social Media Accounts
June 6, 2014
Today, CIA is expanding its social media presence with the launch of official CIA social media accounts on Twitter and Facebook. The launch of these accounts builds the Agency’s online presence beyond its public website, mobile site, and official Flickr and YouTube accounts.
“By expanding to these platforms, CIA will be able to more directly engage with the public and provide information on CIA’s mission, history, and other developments,” said CIA Director John Brennan. “We have important insights to share, and we want to make sure that unclassified information about the Agency is more accessible to the American public that we serve, consistent with our national security mission.”
In addition to posting the latest news, statements, and career information from CIA, the Agency’s social media updates will also feature artifacts and other information from the CIA’s Museum – the best museum most people never get to see. CIA will also post updates and information from the Agency’s “World Factbook,” a unique public resource and educational tool, as well as unclassified intelligence histories and other information.
