Twittering Labor. And We Don't Mean Labor Day.

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Remember that woman who twittered the earthquake -- from her OB-GYN's office? She was in the stirrups when it happened. Whether you think she was an oversharer or a wildly tough chick, she's been done one better. Because now someone is having a baby, twittering all the while.

For all we know, other women have twittered their labor already, but this is the first friend-of-a-friend-of-a-friend to do so. We think it's cool. A little weird, maybe, but pretty hard core Web 2.0. Also, we're relieved she went for the drugs. You go girl! Push! Twitter! Push!
