HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

If you were able to determine what the above message really said, you may have what it takes for a career in the National Security Agency.

The NSA posted that cryptic message Monday morning on their job-recruitment Twitter account.

The Daily Dot used a code-breaking website to quickly get to the bottom of the scrambled message, which in fact involves a simple method of letter substitution. The cryptopuzzle reveals that it is the first of a series of messages the NSA will tweet to generate interest in careers within the agency.

The NSA is calling their Twitter campaign #MissionMonday and will last throughout the month of May.
