Quote:WASHINGTON — On Friday, the Central Intelligence Agency scored a PR coup when the agency’s first-ever tweet was retweeted nearly 270,000 times. For a government entity not often on the right side of feel-good stories, the cheeky leveraging of social media was a total victory.
Behind the scenes, the federal government was preparing to launch a less flashy social media program officials say will have wide-ranging implications when it comes to the way the U.S. government connects with the citizens it serves.
In terms of social media, the federal government has had a problem common to the celebrities: Users who wanted to connect with federal agencies were confronted with a raft of poseurs pretending to be someone they weren’t.
Fixing the problem on Facebook used to be a real headache for the government. The company would only verify government accounts through a cumbersome process that left many government agencies without the coveted blue “verified” check mark and many agency leaders worried users were following fakes. Many agencies kept Facebook and its hundreds of millions of American users at a distance because of it.

We should ask them for exchange. How much will they want to publish a link on their Twitter? Tongue

They should just implement laws to make it illegal to impersonate a Government agency.. simple. Not sure why one can do that in the first place.

It's not like they need prison sentences, just a slap on the wrist and websites required to remove such violation.

I'd say its to prevent scams too, especially involving threats or blackmail.

Many people don't trust the CIA/NSA not anymore because of all the spying etc.., so they want a bit more transparant.

With regard to the CIA (or MI6 for example), I don't think many people would or did trust them anyway - their job is essentially to deceive.
