Sohaib Athar - How his life changed in One Night (Osama Death Live reporting)


This is the series of events shared on Twitter between Sohaib Athar and friends. He is the 1st person to report live the American Abottabad Obama attach (Unknowing). Candidly, they discuss about Powercuts, UFO, Scenic beauty, safety problems in Pakistan. Later do they realize what they were upto and how their life changes in hours. How his Gmail is overloaded with 'following' request, how the world media is after him ( Including NDTV)


Life Changed in few Hours !!!


The conversation is upside down,( As it appears on Twitter). 1st tweet is at bottom.

and here come the mails from the mainstream media... *sigh*

ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
Uh oh, now I'm the guy who liveblogged the Osama raid without knowing it.

ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
I need to sleep, but Osama had to pick this day to die :-/

ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
Damn its getting hard to RT some funny Abbottabad tweets, they're scrolling so fast :-(

how long before the "Call of Duty : Abbottabad, Pakistan" expansion hits the stores?

Abbottabad just became a sexy new spring break destination.

ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@harisn we are both right outside Islamabad :-)
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
I guess I should unsubscribe from the #abbottabad search on twitter before it kills my machine. Leave Abbottabad alone, Osama and Obama...
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@kursed so, not that hard anymore I guess?
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
Wondering what would be the right music to play in the coffee shop today...
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
RT @ISuckBigTime: Osama Bin Laden killed in Abbottabad, Pakistan.: ISI has confirmed it << Uh oh, there goes the neighborhood :-/
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
I guess Abbottabad is going to get as crowded as the Lahore that I left behind for some peace and quiet. *sigh*
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@kursed I think I should take out my big blower to blow the fog of war away and see the clearer picture.
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@kursed Well, there were at least two copters last night, I heard one but a friend heard two, for 15-20 minutes.
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
Report from a sweeper: A family also died in the crash, and one of the helicopter riders got away and is now being searched for.
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@kursed True, but stranger things have happened. I just hope they don't find my giant helicopter swatter. Must hide it :-/
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@ahmedbilal @kursed Sadly. We should start learning how to spread believable stories and recreate a reality that suits us.
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@kursed Another rumor: two copters that followed the crashed one were foreign Cobras - and got away
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@kursed What really happened doesn't matter if there is an official story behind it that 99.999% of the world would believe
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
Report from a taxi driver: The army has cordoned off the crash area and is conducting door-to-door search in the surrounding

I think the helicopter crash in Abbottabad, Pakistan and the President Obama breaking news address are connected.
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
Interesting rumors in the otherwise uneventful Abbottabad air today

1 dead and 1 injured in Abbottabad for heli crashed
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@raihak The day there is uninterrupted electricity in Lahore for a whole month, I will start packing my bags, until then, Abbottabad is home
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
And now, a plane flying over Abbottabad...
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
and now I feel I must apologize to the pilot about the swatter tweets :-/

The Major also says no "missiles" were fired and all such exaggerated reports are nothing but rumours #Pakistan

A Major of the #Pakistan #Army's 19 FF, Platoon CO says incident at #Abbottabad where #helicopter crashed is accidental and not an "attack"
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
Two helicpoters, one down, could actually be the training accident scenario they're saying it was >> http://bit.ly/ioGE6O
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
Here's the location of the Abbottabad crash according to some people >>> http://on.fb.me/khjf34
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@smedica 'safer' is a relative term that has lost its meaning in Pakistan
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@smedica I live near Jalal Baba Auditorium
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@smedica It must have been more, I started noticing the helicpoter when the noise got irritating - which part of Abbottabd are you in?
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@tahirakram very likely - but it was too noisy to be a spy craft, or, a very poor spy craft it was.

ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@smedica people are saying it was not a technical fault and it was shot down. I heard it CIRCLE 3-4 times above, sounded purposeful.

ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@wqs figures, if they have the right to shoot planes flying over the president house, the must have the same instructions for PMA
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
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.
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@tahirakram they're not saying anything
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@kashaziz technically, it is unidentified until identified, and it is a flying object, so year, why the hell not, we have seen weirder stuff
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@tahirakram yea. *hides his giant swatter*
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@raihak yep, the mad power cuts have reached abbottabad - 14 hours daily - luckily I have a generator AND a UPS at the coffee shop
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
Since taliban (probably) don't have helicpoters, and since they're saying it was not "ours", so must be a complicated situation #abbottabad
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@raihak Funny, moving to Abbottabad was part of the 'being safe' strategy
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@
@raihak I try, man, I try
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@m0hcin the few people online at this time of the night are saying one of the copters was not Pakistani...
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@m0hcin http://bit.ly/ljB6p6 seems like my giant swatter worked !
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
@m0hcin all silent after the blast, but a friend heard it 6 km away too... the helicopter is gone too.
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
A huge window shaking bang here in Abbottabad Cantt. I hope its not the start of something nasty :-S
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
Go away helicopter - before I take out my giant swatter :-/
 
ReallyVirtual Sohaib Athar
Helicopter hovering above Abbottabad at 1AM (is a rare event).
