For example, the Defense Visual Information Distribution Service tweeted and subsequently deleted a Gilbert Gottfried-esque misfire about the "Storm Area 51" movement.
On Friday DVIDSHUB tweeted a picture of a B-2 bomber on the flight line with a formation of airmen in front of it along with the caption: "The last thing #Millenials will see if they attempt the #area51raid today."
The Defense Video Imagery Distribution System, or DVIDS to defense and military journalists, is overflowing with pictures, videos, and news briefings, and serves as an indispensable archive for all the Pentagon's media going back decades.
On Feb. 3, U.S. Central Command removed footage that it supposedly secured from its high-profile raid in Yemen on Jan. 29. The video was online from only 11:23 a.m. to 1:21 p.m., an employee at the Defense Video Imagery Distribution System told Task & Purpose. Buzzfeed alleged that the video was titled “Courses for Destroying The Cross,” and that it has been circulating since 2007.
