Allahpundit wrote about his memories of the 9/11 attacks on Twitter last night. Television’s Andy Levy was good enough to collect them for his debut in HotAir’s Greenroom. Removed from their original context — appearing one after the other, two or three a minute — these tweets lose a tiny bit of their immediacy, or the feeling of reliving events in real time. But they remain compelling.
Reading his story is a reminder that Allahpundit — as significant as he has been to the blogosphere — would not exist as we know him but for those despicable al-Qaeda attacks eight years ago. The man has great skill, and I am glad to have gotten to know him a little through Twitter. Yet I am reminded today that a part of me wishes there was no reason or need for an Allahpundit.
