The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is quite well-known across the world and the US intelligence service also runs an interesting Twitter handle and often posts trivia for its over 3 million followers. And if you are one of their followers, you should be aware of the puzzle posts they often share. The foreign intelligence agency shares several posts that many love, such as ‘spot the difference’.
In one such recent tweet, the CIA posted two pictures of the same scene and asked followers to spot the difference between the two. The scene is of an animated illustration of the White House, the US Capitol Building and other prominent structures. Captioning the image, the CIA wrote, “Can you spot the differences?” and also asked people to reply saying how many they could find.

As netizens scratched their heads to point out all the differencesthey could spot in the two scenes, their post received over 1,800 likes and hundreds of user comments on the microblogging site. There were several fans who said they could spot differences and posted their answers with numbers, names of the structures and missing features from the others. However, for many, the trivia post seemed like a test that the CIA takes to induct secret agents.
One user spotted eight and wrote if that was “enough?”
Another found “10 differences” and further wrote that he’s “standing for instructions”.
A third jokingly wrote that he “can’t see any” and won’t be working for the CIA.

Another creative bee asked if he gets a job if he spots all of them.
