The CIA marked the fifth anniversary of the daring raid that killed Osama bin Laden by revealing some little-known details about the operation — in real-time on Twitter.

Over a series of tweets posted to its verified Twitter feed Sunday, the agency gave its 1.3 million Twitter followers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into how the mission unfolded.

The timing of the posts more or less matched the CIA's official timeline of the assault on the al-Qaida leader's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

"To mark the 5th anniversary," the CIA explained, "we will tweet the raid as if it were happening today."
