Twittering during labor?

In the 90s people videotaped the birth of their children, but in the new millennium we have Twitter! Singer Erykah Badu and her boyfriend Jay Electronica twitted her entire labor yesterday, culminating in the home birth of their child, a baby girl. Erykah claims they named the baby Twitty Milk. She's joking......I hope. But can you ever be sure with a woman whose other kids are named Seven and Puma?

"Labor has begun," Electronica Tweeted. "Everybody stand back. No hospitals. No doctors. No medicine. We're waiting for the midwife to show."

How wonderful is that? Whatever she names the kid, I have to give Ms. Badu props. She is an extended nurser and believes and practices natural and attachment parenting. Twitty Milk is hilarious, but it lets everyone know that she is breastfeeding and just how important breast milk is.
