Twitter employee live-tweets during labor, birth

Ladies, what’s the first thing you do if your water breaks?

Tweet about it, of course. Especially if you’re a Twitter employee.

Claire Diaz-Ortiz, a Twitter employee known as @Claire, sent tweets to her then-333,000 followers on April 5, the minute her water broke.

She then sent 26 more tweets, ranging from updates on her contractions to her car even breaking down along the way.

She arrived safely, though, and in plenty of time to tweet about ice chips, listening to Dave Ramsey, Bethenny Frankel of “Real Housewives,” baby names and even her placenta (yuck!).

And as for the end result? Well, you can follow her on Twitter on @Lucia, natch.
