Osama Bin Laden is Dead: The Best of Twitter


[Is this list too long to read? I just published the Very Best of Twitter List. I am no longer tracking Twitter. What could top the Hitler's reaction spoof?]

I've been tracking Twitter for the best news updates, comments, reactions, photographs and jokes from around the world since one hour before the official announcement.

Scroll down to read tweets from Dr. Henry Kissinger, Keith Olbermann, Clinton and Geoge Bush and John McCain quotes, The Young Turks, The Daily Show co-creator, Stephen Colbert, Daily Kos creator, filmmaker Michael Moore, the Pakistani man who ended up live blogging the raid in Abbottobad, Fox News fails, BBC Obama dead spelling error, photos of NYC firemen rejoicing at the news, Conan O'Brien, Albert Brooks, Lord Voldemort, Gryphen (the immoral minority Alaskan blogger of Sarah Palin fame), tweets from the community at the Anti-Palin blog Politicalg­ates, the official New York Times frontpage, Fareed Zakaria, NYT and WSJ South Asia reporters, The Hindu, Indian Express, Times of India, Al Jazeera- English, reactions from Indians on Pakistan's role, reactions from around the world, a gruesome graphic photo of Osama's bloody face, and much much more.


Before we start, a word from President Barack Obama:

The President's remarks on the death of Osama bin Laden, full video:

Don't Miss:

The IT consultant in Abbottobad, Pakistan who inadvertently ended up live-(micro) blogging / live- tweeting the Osama Bin Laden raid: https://twitter.com/ReallyVirtual

Chief of Staff, Office of Donald Rumsfeld, Keith Urbahan who was the very first person who "leaked" the news on Twitter:

Keith Urbahn

So I'm told by a reputable person they have killed Osama Bin Laden. Hot damn.

damn! obama kills osama...who wud have thunk? Dont know why, i dont feel so thrilled about all this..a whole lot of celebration for a persons death...its so damn morbid..people are so fucking scary.

Pundit Commentator said...

Turn on CNN. People at Ground Zero are celebrating a sense of closure, not the death of the person, per se. Saw a woman bring out a photo of her dead husband. Others saying, "Today we are all Americans."

Thanks for all the tweets PC.

Pundit Commentator said...

Tys said...

yeah....that will make sense...a sense of closure...when i first heard this i was in the car...i stopped on the road side and fucking cried...then i went to a client office, where they were giving each other high fives and I was thinking that somewhere someone wud have done that too when the towers went down...been feeling so isolated and outside today...sometimes i find people scary.

These are great PC. I especially liked a couple of Michael Moore's. O/T: Your final site looks great.
