- Twitter — It was a big moment for Twitter, as the news actually broke on the microblogging site. Though there was a traffic spike of 4,000 tweets per second, there was not a fail whale in sight. Way to go!
- Internet — As the news leaked out and President Obama began his speech, the Internet was a pretty packed place with over four million pageviews per minute to top news sites, which amounts to a 28 percent increase here in the US.
- Mobile news — Mobile browsers aren't immune from high traffic spikes, as CNN's mobile site crashed shortly after the news hit.
- Newseum — Citizens looking to find out how newspapers around the country are covering Osama bin Laden's death would usually check Newseum (which posts digital replicas of hundreds of newspapers around the country), but searchers actually crashed the newspaper site this morning.
Ever wish you could scroll through all the daily newspaper front pages? Yes you can! Head on over to Newseum, where you can peruse through front pages in their original, unedited form. And if you're looking for papers outside of the US, no problemo because Newseum offers a search section where you can browse by city, country, or by a map. Can you tell I'm extremely jazzed up about this site?
