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
