One man apparently knew about Osama bin Laden's death before President Barack Obama made the announcement.

Long before Obama spoke to the nation — and before media outlets reported the news, The Rock took to twitter and posted, "Just got word that will shock the world — Land of the free ... home of the brave DAMN PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!"

Dwayne Johnson later tweeted that he "couldn't have asked for a better birthday present."
