Late this morning, @FanSince09, the anonymous Twitter user who last month helped solve an anti-gay hate crime in Philadelphia, appeared on The View for an interview with Rosie O'Donnell.

In the interview, @FanSince09, who, to maintain his anonymity, kept his back to the camera, spoke about his love for Philadelphia , how long it took to find the three suspects —"I did maybe about 45 minutes of work, but with crowd sourcing, we got three people identified in about two hours"— and why he wants to remain anonymous.

The three suspects—Philip Williams and Kathryn Knott, both 24, and Kevin Harrigan, 26, all of Bucks County—turned themselves last month on charges of aggravated assault, criminal conspiracy, simple assault, and recklessly endangering another person.
