Incredible: Twitter pinpoints the minute of the attack
As the death toll climbs to 3, including a child, and over 140 injured, Twitter is buzzing with news, pictures, and tweets about the attack–including a lot of truly baffling and vile commentary from media pundits.
A search of Twitter has also turned up what appears to be the very first tweet (and hence, report of any kind) about the bombing:
Holy shit! Explosion!

The time-stamp puts the first explosion at exactly 2:50 PM eastern time.
It’s a strange world we live in when history and headlines are made and recorded in real time.
