Osama Bin Laden is Dead, Picture The Event Tweeted LIVE on Twitter

As most of you will probably be aware, the world has seemingly stopped for a moment as it has been confirmed that terror mastermind Osama Bin Laden has been killed by US forces after a raid in Pakistan. Now imagine the event being recorded live on social networking website Twitter.

Amazing as it sounds, that looks like what has happened, as one Twitter user who lives in the area which Osama Bin Laden had been hiding, documented the whole thing on his page not knowing that he was actually capturing the moment when the world’s most wanted man was finally found out after 10 years of living in the shadows.

We can reveal that the Twitter user in question is Sohaib Athar, and you can see a few of his Tweets below via TechCrunch, it’s fascinating stuff.

‘Helicopter hovering above Abbottabad at 1AM (is a rare event).”

”A huge window shaking bang here in Abbottabad Cantt. I hope its not the start of something nasty :-S”

”The abbottabad helicopter/UFO was shot down near the Bilal Town area, and there’s report of a flash. People saying it could be a drone.”

He continued to give updates as the events unfolded, and it finally culminated in this Tweet, realising what he had done:

”Uh oh, now I’m the guy who liveblogged the Osama raid without knowing it.”

So there we have it. Who would have thought such a major event in world affairs would be documented live using Twitter? We’re glad the tweets are still visible now, and they haven’t been removed yet – you can check out the whole thing on his Twitter account here. Let us know your thoughts on this.
