We all know that Twitter has become a very important resource for worldwide breaking news, and the information that is shared has, in a lot of ways, helped to change the world.

Last night, thousands of people (if not millions) took to their Twitter accounts to report on and gather information about the death of Osama bin Laden.

But there's a whole other side to the social media site that goes on simultaneously as the important facts are being passed around: the humorous and satirical take on the subject by the thousands of comedians and writers who are on Twitter. We searched around and highlighted a cross section of how comedians reacted to the news of bin Laden's death.

Read 23 humorous tweets (in no particular order) after the jump.
