You’d be forgiven to think that the CIA already had an Instagram account. It, apparently, does not.
The CIA might already be on Facebook and Twitter, but it’s not on Instagram. YET. According to reports, CIA Director Gina Haspel announced that the agency’s public affairs department is ready to launch an Instagram account and will do it in collaboration with a team at the platform.
Earlier this week, an Instagram spokesperson also told The Verge’s Makena Kelly that a 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.”
.@CIA Director Gina Haspel says the agency will soon launch its very own Instagram account.
So. There's that.

It’s not clear when the account will be launched, or what content strategy the CIA might follow but Mashable reported that a placeholder page exists, and it contains a random code that makes no sense. YET.
