Even in the world of cryptic tweets, this one was out there: tpfccdlfdtte pcaccplircdt dklpcfrp?

What initially seemed like an accidental tweet from an NSA office on Monday had deeper — and characteristically for the agency, secretive — meaning.

“As part of our recruitment efforts to attract the best and the brightest, we will post mission-related coded Tweets on Mondays in the month of May,” an NSA spokesperson said.

Despite jokes about a potential “butt-dial” or a drunk tweet, the NSA assured that it was intentional, and added that it wasn’t even a new effort.
