Live-Tweeting Birth Of A Baby

A new father signals thumbs up after his wife delivered a baby boy this morning in Houston, Texas. A routine cesarean section delivery at the Houston hospital went live with the surgery on Twitter on Wednesday, broadcasting snippets of information along with graphic pictures and video, part of a growing and ever more popular trend as hospitals and doctors hungry for clients use social media to promote their services. This photo was posted on its Twitter feed during the surgery. The patient and her family members were not identified in the Twitter feed. (AP Photo/Women's Memorial Hermann Hospital)

Question: Would you consider live-tweeting of a birth of one of your children?
