Social Media coverage of Osama bin Laden’s death
Since the Navy SEAL awesomeness from Sunday will be taking up 99% of the media coverage for the next few days, I thought I put up a quick post (that I will be updating) with a list of links to various coverage of how people, in America and abroad, used social media to learn about and discuss the news. Twitter’s most recent estimate is that there were about 4,000 5,100 tweets per second just before President Obama’s news conference. Also, there was an IT guy who lives near the compound and actually live tweeted the attack, not knowing what was going on.
Daily Mail has excellent pictures from around the country.
Lastly, the wrong way to use facebook.
Update: Interesting comparison between OBL announcement and the Super Bowl.
And there are a disturbing number of American teenagers who don’t know who Bin Laden is.
Update #2: FastCompany
