Logged on to Twitter a few moments ago to see this tweet:
Osama Bin Laden is Dead
Curious as it’s 10:30 pmish at night – which means an hour ahead in DC – Obama is on the screen delivering a live stream off of the White House’s website stating that Osama Bin Laden is dead.
Yes, Osama Bin Laden is dead. The evil man who is behind the attacks of September 11th as well as numerous other terrorist activities. He’s killed so many directly and indirectly – we’ve spent the last 9 and a half years seeking him out and now, he is dead – like that. And I found out as soon as the rest of the world did, on Twitter.
The White House joined Twitter and is great at keeping the Twitter world up to date with the latest. Thru-out the brief press conference they tweeted the highlights of what President Obama was saying.

Twitter is a game changer on how news is being delivered. In a typical day, I would not of been checking news sites at this hour. While sure, someone could of tweeted a link, the fact we learned this information about Osama’s death directly from our President via a web stream – is a game changer on how news is delivered.
