This incident again shows the power of social media…I heard about it from a friend’s text message and then I confirmed the news on twitter. Then I turned on the TV. An hour later I saw the president’s press conference. Twitter is so much faster, and oddly reliable.

This morning one of the top stories is that a man actually tweeted the entire incident in Abbottabad without knowing what it was. From twitter: @ is about to become famous -> Man unknowingly liveblogs Bin Laden operation
