As Twitchy readers will recall, Andrew Kitzenberg was one of the compelling eyewitnesses who provided live-tweets from Watertown, Mass., late last Thursday night and early Friday morning after the MIT shooting (see our comprehensive coverage of those events here, including many of Kitzenberg’s tweets and photos from 62 Laurel Street).

In advance of a scheduled interview on CNN tonight, Kitzenberg took the pictures he tweeted last week and turned them into an annotated, timestamped photo essay.


At the 11th hour @ac360 had to cancel, just as I sent them all my pics. If you see them on CNN say something!!

— Andrew Kitzenberg (@AKitz) April 23, 2013

The interview may have been canceled, but word of his work spread again on Twitter tonight and readers are grateful.

@akitz Can’t believe AC canceled on you. Your pics are amazing. The write-up, too. Good work, man.

Looks like Kitzenberg has plenty of other media interest.
