WASHINGTON — Whoever had the Labor Day weekend shift on the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Twitter account may have been feeling a little punchy.

On Saturday afternoon the “verified” account, which has 83,400 followers, likely including foreign spies, sent a pointed and sarcastic message aimed at the Chinese government.

“Classy as always China,” the tweet read, linking to a New York Times article about a heated verbal kerfuffle that almost escalated into something serious between U.S. and Chinese officials after President Barack Obama landed in China aboard Air Force One.

The Twitter message was quickly deleted, but not before its pointed snark was noticed by a number of people.
