CIA Claims It Doesn't Know Where Tupac Shakur Is
The CIA is known for being notoriously secretive, which is perhaps a requirement for such an organization. That's not to say that it doesn't have a sense of humor, however.
The famed agency created its Twitter account back in June 6. Its 71 tweets focused mostly about the U-2, a reconnaissance aircraft, some trivia and a bit of history — things the average civilian wouldn't have a dying interest in. One thing the average civilian — particularly music fans — does have at least a passing interest in is Tupac Shakur.
CIA celebrated its "#Twitterversary" on Monday (June 7) after one month on the network by answering some innocuous questions. One of them is a question that's been asked for album 20 years: Where's Tupac Shakur? Not even the CIA knows.
No, we don’t know where Tupac is. #twitterversary

Shakur was infamously shot to death on Las Vegas Boulevard on Sept. 7, 1996, but many believe that he's still somehow alive and living in secret to this day. The urban myth has even traced his whereabouts to Cuba.
The CIA gave a few other humorous answers in the short Q&A session.
YES, we are hiring. http://t.co/008Lvn9fWJ #twitterversary — CIA (@CIA) July 7, 2014
This wasn't the first time the CIA indulged in humor. Its first tweet lampooned the organization's own presence.
We can neither confirm nor deny that this is our first tweet.

Thist is still the most retweeted of the CIA tweets.
