I would, though, politely disagree with what exactly was "live tweeted." Reading that tweet, what do we actually know? At the time, we don't know whether it is one more meaningless bit of information (in terms of our lives) in the overwhelming mass of worldwide data churned and burned each day -- or, perhaps, the first glimmer of a monumental event. A "rare event" in Mr. Athar's world means little to me without some context. But, of course, context is the last thing you should come looking for on Twitter when it is on fire. That's not a criticism - just a fact.
