A woman from Florida was the first to webcast the birth of her child
The wife of one of the co-founders of Twitter is keeping family and friends up to date with the birth of her child using the micro-blogging service.
"Dear Twitter, My water broke. It wasn't like Charlotte in Sex and the City," Sara Morishige Williams, or @sara as she is known, wrote on Monday.
Updates follow her into hospital and through her contractions - which she timed using an Apple iPhone, she said.
Her last update asked for an epidural to be administered.
The father-to-be, Evan Williams, has not followed his wife's lead by "tweeting" the birth.
It is not the first birth to be followed in real-time online.
In 1998 a woman from Florida was the first to webcast the birth of her child.
