The ignorance of some Twitter users about Osama bin Laden was nothing short of astounding after news that the No. 1 terrorist in the world had been killed at the hands of U.S. special forces.

Twitter, Osama bin LadenAfter the raid in Abbotabad, a spike of Tweets came out from people who acknowledged that they had no idea who he was, the man who masterminded the 9/11 plot that ended up murdering nearly 3,000 innocent people, the Toronto Sun reports.

“Who is osama?! & why is it so good he died?” wrote one user of the social network site. Another wrote: “Who is Osama Bin Laden? Is he in a band aswell?”

Other Web users at least looked him up rather than admitting their ignorance online. Yahoo searches for “Osama bin Laden” doubled in the hours after his death was announced.
