The CIA wants to set the record straight about NBC's State of Affairs.

The agency has taken to fact-checking the show on Twitter, much like it did in November with the 2012 Oscar-winning film Argo.

During Monday night's episode, Katherine Heigl's character, Charleston Tucker, presents the president with a folder of documents at the President's Daily Briefing (PDB), a daily update on national security issues.

It turns out, the real President is a little more tech-savvy than that. As proof, the CIA tweeted a photo of President Barack Obama reading the PDB on a tablet.

Will State of Affairs upgrade its president (Alfre Woodard) tablet of his own? Only time will tell.

It doesn't take much sleuthing through the CIA's Twitter feed to notice a pattern emerging. Following the Nov. 23 episode, when Tucker met in person with agency operatives, the CIA tweeted that face-to-face meetings are the most dangerous for its agents, who prefer to use "dead drops" to share information.

NBC declined to comment.
