Vacationing IT Consultant Unknowingly Live Tweets bin Laden’s Death
Sohaib Athar was vacationing in the mountains outside of Abbottabad, Pakistan, late Sunday night when he heard the sounds of helicopters closing in.
The IT consultant had his laptop with him, so he began live-tweeting what we now know were U.S. special forces descending upon Osama bin Laden’s hideout.
“Uh oh, now I’m the guy who liveblogged the Osama raid without knowing it,” Athar concluded after realizing what he had done. Read on to see highlights from Athar’s tweets, detailing this historic event.
