unwittingly tweeted about the attack as the helicopters circled above....you can read his tweets on the Washington Post website.
In other Twitter-related news, following in the footsteps of that escaped snake from the Bronx Zoo, there is now a GhostOsama user (pictured here) that popped up last night shortly after the big news hit the airwaves at 10:45pm. I found this stream last night around 11:30pm as I was following reactions on Twitter and Facebook....a lot more interesting than watching the networks I have to say. Anyway, in less than 24 hours, the silly-sounding ghost of OBL has racked up nearly 40,000 followers. Sample tweet: 70 Virgins Left...I need a cigarette and a nap. LOL.
Joking aside, the death of this mass murderer has been a long time coming and,in New York today, there is a general sense of communal relief.
