The latest bid by the US Central Intelligence Agency to enlist Russian-speaking workers produced an unexpected result due to a grammar mistake making its way in the recruitment notice posted on Twitter.
Somehow, the person or persons writing the tweet somehow managed to slip up using English by asking their prospective candidates if they were "an US candidate with a college degree." Ironically, the phrase 'Do you speak Russian?', written in Russian and featured in a picture in the tweet, did not contain any mistakes.
The mistake did not elude the watchful eye of the Twitter audience.

Could it be @realDonaldTrump twitting from the CIA headquarters? 😉🤣— Edward Kloczko (@EKloczko) 31 мая 2018 г.
Some people who didn’t notice the mistake or possibly chose to ignore also cracked jokes about the post itself, wondering whether it’s some kind of elaborate trap.
