Sohaib Athar, @ReallyVirtual on Twitter, is a 33 year old programmer from Lahore, Pakistan. But, when he began tweeting about some strange activities going on in Abbottabad… he had no idea that he was essentially “Live-Tweeting” the raid on Osama bin Laden.

It seems as though Sohib doesn’t want all the attention that comes with his impromptu live-tweeting session. He just tweeted, “I am JUST a tweeter, awake at the time of the crash. Not many twitter users in Abbottabad, these guys are more into facebook. That’s all.

In any case, if you’d like to check out Sohaib’s tweets, you can view them below in order.
