Birth By BlackBerry: A Twitter Diary

What would possess a man to use Twitter through the birth of his twins?

Oddly enough, after a year-plus of blogblogblogging, we actually sort of get the impulse. But we’re also confident that our BlackBerry would have been smashed into shards very soon into the process. And we wouldn’t escape unscathed, either.

In any event we are fascinated to read today’s running commentary from Kieran Hawe, who handles SEO for MTV Networks. You can get the whole thing, including links to photos of young Kamran and Alanna, at Kieran’s Twitter stream. Great stuff. But we do hope he’s kidding about the live streaming. Congrats to all.

Update: Holy cow. As our commenters note below, someone has already live streamed their kid’s birth.

How long before I get busted for being on my blackberry in the operating room?

Operating rooms freak me out even though I am not having anything done.
