CIA Joins Instagram, Captioned Its First post “ I spy with my little eye…”

Beware! CIA is watching you on Instagram.

US-based security agency, the CIA launched its official account on Instagram, announcing its presence on one more social media platform. The CIA is already present on Facebook and Twitter.

The news of the Central Intelligence Agency joining Instagram was not that much a surprise as Gina Haspel, Director of CIA, announced the past week that the US Central Intelligence Agency will start creating a presence on the social media platform during a conversation at Auburn University in Alabam.

In a conversation with The Verge, CIA spokesperson Chelsea Robinson said,

“Joining Instagram is another way we’re sharing CIA’s stories and recruiting talented Americans to serve here. Through the account, we’ll give a peek into Agency life, but we can’t promise any selfies from secret locations. We’re looking to spark the curiosity of Instagram’s users about the many ways CIA’s global mission has us going where others cannot go and do what others cannot do.”

CIA’s Instagram account is created in a bid to increase the transparency, a task that is difficult to maintain for a secretive society. Until now the CIA has got the Instagram followers count of over twenty thousand followers.

Instagram also confirmed that it assisted the CIA in launching their IG account by stating,

“Our team worked with the CIA, as they do with many partners, to provide best practices and guidance when it comes to launching an Instagram account.”

Let's check out how the CIA’s Instagram debut went.

The CIA first post is a photo of an Agency fake officer’s desk. Obviously, it is a staged photo but it initiated the challenge on Instagram to identify items on the desk that are important to the CIA. The first post of CIA is captioned “ I spy with my little eye…”

Till now, we are able to find these items on the CIA desk,

  1. Some bamboo.
  2. LL bean alarm clock.
  3. Three maps of Russia, China, and Iran.
  4. A notebook with these words written on it “We share what we can and protect what we must.”
  5. Haspel’s first CIA badge photo from 1985 dangles.
  6. A mop-like wig. 

Sounds amazing for a Secretive Agency? Yes? Then follow the CIA Instagram’s account and tell us what other things you are able to spot.
