Rosie O’Donnell Talks With Philadelphia Gay-Bashing Twitter Sleuth

Twitter user @FanSince09, who has been credited in leading a social media manhunt in identifying the suspects in the September 11 gay bashing in Center City, Philadelphia, appeared on The View to share why he decided to put his social media skills to work and help solve a crime.

The social media sleuth – @FanSince09 – chose to keep his identity anonymous:

“I did maybe about 45 minutes of work, but with crowd sourcing, we got at least three people identified within two hours.”

Since the violent attack, a bill that would amend Pennsylvania’s hate crimes statues to include protections for sexual orientation and gender identity has recently passed the House Judiciary Committee 19-4.
