A Twitter Employee Just Live-Tweeted The Birth Of Her Daughter

Claire Diaz-Ortiz is what you’d call a “company woman.” After all, the Twitter employee took to the social network on Saturday morning to proclaim her water had broke; she was going into “#labor.”


Then she live-tweeted the entire ordeal, right up until the birth of her daughter.

Diaz-Ortiz, who goes by @Claire on Twitter, lives in Buenos Aires with her husband, and began having contractions early Saturday morning, when she began to tweet. A BuzzFeed reporter, who was also following the story, spoke to Claire’s father who confirmed that her tweets were not a hoax.
