Twitter is celebrating its seventh anniversary today. Check out seven lives changed by the popular microblogging site.
Sohaib Athar. Athar was a 33-year-old IT consultant who ended up unknowingly becoming the first person report on the death of terrorist Osama bin Laden at the hands of a U.S. Navy SEAL team. Suddenly, news outlets from around the world were scrambling for interviews with him. His modest 750 Twitter followers ballooned to more than 105,000 (they've since settled back to about 64,000). He continues to tweet from Abbottabad and continues to tell his story.
