Säpo makes Twitter debut
The security and intelligence section of the Swedish police, has joined Twitter with an eyebrow-raising message: “In the interest of security, we’re now on Twitter. Follow us, because we follow you.”
The tone seems to have been inspired by the first tweet from the CIA six months ago: “We can neither confirm nor deny that this is our first tweet.”
According to a press release, Säpo’s step into social media is “part of a broader ambition to be more open and accessible as an agency”.
Säpo's first tweet:
För säkerhets skull finns vi nu på Twitter. Följ oss, för vi följer er.— Säkerhetspolisen (@SAPOsverige) January 2, 2015
The CIA's first tweet:
We can neither confirm nor deny that this is our first tweet.— CIA (@CIA) June 6, 2014
