Pakistani Accidentally Tweets Bin Ladin Operation

Sohaib Athar, a computer programmer and blogger in the town of Abbottabad, Pakistan, began covering the arrival of helicopters above his city early Monday morning. Throughout the day, he sent out more tweets, noting the bombs, more helicopters, and wondering exactly what was going on. Finally, he speculated, "I think the helicopter crash in Abbottabad, Pakistan and the President Obama breaking news address are connected." He had just livetweeted the operation to "take out" Osama bin Laden. More here from Diaa Hadid of the Associated Press.
