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.

Asked about the content and context of the tweet from @NSACareers, the NSA told ABC News that it was what many people online had already guessed: a code.

“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.

The code has already been broken, but can you figure it out?
