Where were you when you heard the news?

Perhaps the biggest news story of the year, if not the decade, was broken by a twitter nearly two hours prior to the official government announcement, and a full hour before the US media confirmed the news. Where were you when you heard the news that Osama Bin Laden, perpetrator of the 9/11 attacks that left some 3,000 souls dead,  met his end with the piercing of a bullet?
