Over the past several years, Twitter has earned a reputation as the social media site for humor, whether it be hashtag jokes, non-sequitur observations, or snide comments about the trends of the day. For proof of that, look no further than the CIA’s Twitter feed, which mixes serious tweets about the agency’s history with jokes such as this one:
No, we don’t know where Tupac is. #twitterversary

The Tupac tweet was one of several that celebrated the CIA’s so-called “twitterversary,” a tongue-in-cheek commemoration of the agency’s being on Twitter for one month. The CIA’s first tweet, by the way, was also a joke:
We can neither confirm nor deny that this is our first tweet.
