Tweeter Sohaib Athar got unexpectedly very famous today as — in his own wording — “the guy who liveblogged the Osama raid without knowing it. ” While fending off press  requests from every media outlet on planet Earth, he’s been chronicling his own story, posting something I find much more fascinating than any canned sound bite he could offer a journalist who didn’t know who he was 24 hours ago and won’t care 72 hours from now.
He’s been photographing Abbottabad, giving those following his tweets a peek into a remote place they’d never otherwise see. It’s beautiful — and very quiet. My favourite of the full set of photos is, of course, a local restaurant. -Stacy
