Twitter Employee Live Tweets Childs Birth For The World To See

Twitter employee Claire Diaz-Ortiz takes her job very serious. How serious? She used her employers micro-blogging platform to live-tweet the birth of her child. On Saturday morning Diaz-Ortiz live-tweeted that she was going into #Labor and then the tweets kept on coming.
