At the news that terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden had been killed by U.S. forces, Twitter erupted with posts.
The news itself has roots in the microblog, as one of the first public declarations of bin Laden's death was pushed out in under 140 characters by Navy Reserve intel officer Keith Urbahn. "So I'm told by a reputable person they have killed Osama Bin Laden. Hot damn." Cue the frenzy you're seeing now.
