Over the weekend, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Tweeted the announcement that Bruce Willis was officially joining the cast of 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation.' Tweets like this have become commonplace for The Rock -- the guy likes to break news! Remember, this is the man who first Tweeted about the death of Osama Bin Laden. The Rock joined Twitter on February 14, 2011, and, little did we know it then, was about ready to change the world with his Team Bring It mantra and a steady diet of surprisingly accurate -- but not always important -- breaking news stories. With that, we scoured through every one of The Rock's 1568 Tweets (and counting) to bring you a brief history of The Rock breaking news.
