Twitter did it again! While all the world was having a normal Sunday afternoon, a 33-year-old IT consultant by the name of Sohaib Athar accidentally live-tweeted the assault on Osama bin Laden's pleasure palace in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The tech was initially annoyed by the loud noise of a helicopter hovering above the area and then tweeted this now famous message: "A huge window shaking bang here in Abbottabad Cantt. I hope its not the start of something nasty" 

Athar stated he didn't know what was actually taking place at the time and went on to say, "I am JUST a tweeter, awake at the time of the crash. Not many twitter users in Abbottabad. That's all." 
He is now reportedly hiding in the mountains with his laptop. Several media outlets have tried to reach Athar for comment.

  • That is *-crazy-*!!! Wonder if the developers of Twitter knew they were giving the average man the ability to scoop savvy news media on an average day.

  • This only shows how much social networking can cause vulnerable and secret operations a win or a lose; but that is what is the freedom so many gain as a spoil of war.
