PRISM NSA Job Posting Tweeted on Same Day the Secret Leaks Out

The National Security Agency tweeted a job opening for its "Digital Network Exploitation Analyst Development Program" Thursday, the same day its top-secret PRISM program that allows the government agency to sift through Internet users' information was revealed.

PRISM is a government program created in 2007 — and revealed Thursday by the Washington Post — that essentially serves as a blanket wiretap for the Internet. It allows the NSA and FBI to record "audio, video, photographs, chats, emails, documents, and connection logs" from virtually every major tech company, including "Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube, and Apple" in order to "track foreign targets."

The bombshell report was made all the more unbelievable when the NSA tweeted a job opening for something called a "Digital Network Exploitation Analyst," which sounds suspiciously similar to what PRISM purports to do.

While it's not clear whether the job posting is directly linked to PRISM, the irony of its timing still amused Twitter users.

And what's worse — this is the warning that pops up when you click through to the actual job posting.
