Sohaib Athar was taking a break from the rat-race in the mountains with his laptops when he unknowingly tweeted the assassination of Osama bin Laden.
*Helicopter hovering above Abbottabad at 1am (is a rare event).
*Go away helicopter - before I take out my giant swatter.
*A huge window shaking bang here in Abbottabad Cantt. I hope its not the start of something nasty.
*All silent after the blast, but a friend heard it 6km away too ... the helicopter is gone too.
*Seems like my giant swatter worked!
*The few people online at this time of the night are saying one of the copters was not Pakistani ...
*Moving to Abbottabad was part of the 'being safe' strategy.
*Since Taleban (probably) don't have helicopters, and since they're saying it was not "ours", must be a complicated situation #abbottabad
*The mad power cuts have reached abbottabad - 14 hours daily - luckily I have a generator AND a UPS at the coffee shop.
*The abbottabad helicopter/UFO was shot down near the Bilal Town area, and there's report of a flash. People saying it could be a drone.
*It was too noisy to be a spy craft, or, a very poor spy craft it was.
*The Pakistan Army confirms a foreign helicopter crashed.
*And now I feel I must apologize to the pilot about the swatter tweets.
*I think the helicopter crash in Abbottabad, Pakistan and the President Obama breaking news address are connected.
*Report from a taxi driver: The army has cordoned off the crash area and is conducting door-to-door search in the surrounding.
*What really happened doesn't matter if there is an official story behind it that 99.999 per cent of the world would believe.
*Another rumor: two copters that followed the crashed one were foreign Cobras - and got away.
*Well, there were at least two copters last night, I heard one but a friend heard two, for 15-20 minutes.
*I guess Abbottabad is going to get as crowded as the Lahore that I left behind for some peace and quiet. 'sigh'.
*Osama Bin Laden killed in Abbottabad, Pakistan. ISI has confirmed it. Uh oh, there goes the neighborhood.
*How long before the "Call of Duty: Abbottabad, Pakistan" expansion hits the stores?
*Uh oh, now I'm the guy who liveblogged the Osama raid without knowing it.
