"Like you haven't threatened us many times before! Btw, Osama officially retired from terrorism!"
The first line is hard consonants back to back. The second line focuses vowels and soft consonants. This response is made by a professional writer.
Probably a copy writer. Whether it be by trade or by talent, who knows.
For ease of reading.
Now I will read your post. It was so juicyy at the start, I had to post this before I finished. @TarzanBeta
Edit: I'm not picking up what your putting down. Is "T" a soft consonant? Are we talking about the same Tweet? Would a professional copywriter or poet
find utility from "BTW"?
Meter the lines.
Like you haven't | threatened us many | ti-mes be fore |
By the way | Osama officiall- | y retired from | terrorism |
(edit to add: The second line could be metered alternately here: By the way | Osama officiall- | y retired | from terrorism |)
This is made by a professional.
T is androgynous. It can soften some phrases and harden some phrases. When "t" comes after certain letters, like the letter "m" in the last line,
the hardness brought it only accents the softness of the phrase, like salt enhances sugar.
In the first line, the first three words set the mood for the rest of the words. Start hard, the rest flows hard. By the way switches from hard to
soft. The alliteration of the "r" sounds in the second line create a windmill or a fan effect.
Some people do not have to sit down and actually plot it out. Some people are used to speaking poetically, so that the words they choose and how they
put things together naturally flows in this way.
But I know that this is a professional writer. Whether by trade or by talent, who knows.

Edit to add again: It just dawned on me that if there was a mathematical code, it might possibility be found in the metering of phrases as

That is correct. Valid point. The writer of the Tweet does seem to be addressing the audience more so than the enemy.
Here is a list of terms of poetry terms which will help you understand how many were used in those lines.
Alliteration, Assonance, Allusion, Common Meter, Neutral Diction, Foot (the current in question being trimeter), Litotes (understatement), Iambic
Pentameter (most common in English, elevation speech to poetry) (the meters are being used alternatively), Image, Metaphor (but not the first line),
Slant rhyme, Simile (with inference in the second line in the form of indirect metaphor)
