Osama Bin Laden Death on Twitter

Twitter, Facebook Explode as News of Osama Bin Laden's Death Spreads

President Obama took to the airwaves earlier to announce that Osama bin Laden had been killed. And if you had been away from your TV set, radio, or Internet at any point this evening, you could quickly get caught up on the events due to several trending topics like "Osama bin Laden," "mission accomplished," "Watching CNN," and "Wolf Blitzer."

We already know that Twitter is a great source for breaking news, but this time, the news actually came first on Twitter thanks to a clued-in former chief-of-staff for Donald Rumsfeld. There's already a Facebook page dedicated to the news with over 142,000 likes. Obviously, news travels fast these days, but how did you hear about the death of Osama bin Laden — Twitter, Facebook, or another traditional news source?
