The breaking news of Osama Bin Laden's death proved the massive power of social media. Before President Obama could formally announce the death of Bin Laden, records were already being broken with 3,000 Tweets per second, which totaled to 12.4 Million Tweets per hour or 27.9 Million Tweets in just 2 hours according to @Mashable. In fact, the first Tweet to break the news of Bin Laden's death was “I am told by a reputable person they have killed Osama bin Laden. Hot damn," Tweeted by Keith Urbahn (@keithurbahn), Chief of Staff for the Office of Donald Rumsfeld and Navy Reserve intel officer.
