During the week, Sara Williams tweeted about her new born baby. She had the baby with her husband and Twitter CEO Evan Williams. To write about what was going on, she used text messaging to notify Twitter about the updates.
Below are some of the messages that both Evan and Sara tweeted.
Aug 11th 12:10 PM: Operation Baby Launch continues on track, though a bit too slowly in my opinion. That’s usually the case with big launches though.
Aug 11th 3:55 PM: “Yes! @sara gave birth to a perfect baby boy. Both are well. 8 pounds, 21 inches! Smiles all around.”
Aug 12th 4:10 PM: “Thx for all the well wishes! Mom, baby, and dad are in the hospital, feeding, recovering, occasionally sleeping…all generally amazed.”
Aug 10th 11:46 PM: “Dear Twitter, My water broke. It wasn’t like Charlotte in Sex and the City. Now, timing contractions on an iPhone app.”
Aug 11th 1:37 AM: “The Contraction Tracker was fun until the contractions got painful.”
Aug 11th 4:11 AM: “Admitted to hospital. Got the second-to-last room.”
Aug 11th 5:49 AM: “Epidural, yes please.”
Aug 11th 1:20 PM: “The heartbeat monitor soothes the silence of a room that will shortly be anything but silent.”
Aug 11th 5:12 PM: “@ev is changing the first diaper.”
After reading these messages, I realized how addictive Twitter really can be. Especially if a woman can sit their tweeting during the whole childbirth process.
