I’m A Good Nana I Just Cuss A Lot Glitter Lips Shirt, hoodie
Keith Urbahn: All of a sudden my phone just started just blowing up with Twitter notifications. There was something new about social media in the bin Laden news cycle—how it informed people in near-real time as the first people outside government found out. It showed that news like this didn’t need to be delivered anymore through reading it on the front page of the newspaper or hearing it on a network broadcast from a Walter Cronkite. Besides the guy in Abbottabad, who didn’t know what was going on, mine happened to be the first tweet that put it all together. The Rock tweeted something at same minute—I beat him by a few seconds—but he was opaque about what he knew.
Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock), 10:24 p.M., May 1, 2011, via Twitter: Just got word that will shock the world – Land of the free…Home of the brave DAMN PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!
Ben Rhodes: We’re like, “How the hell did The Rock know about this?” I have no idea where The Rock gets his information, but it’s pretty good information.
Pete Souza: Just before we walked over to the East Room, the president was sitting making last minute edits to his speech on one of the desks outside the Oval Office, and it had started to leak out on TV.
Jay Carney: When it mattered to him, he would always rewrite it by hand.
Pete Souza: We start walking over to the East Room, along the colonnade, and you could hear the crowd that was starting to gather in front of the White House from what had been leaked out.
Ben Rhodes: I was still calling in edits to the teleprompter operator as Obama was walking down to the East Room. In the East Room there, when the president speaks, you’re usually with a bunch of people. But in this case it was just everybody from the operation—people like Brennan, Hillary Clinton, Gates and Mullen. We’re all just standing in the back of this room.
