Twitter Sara Morishige Williams, wife of Twitter CEO Evan Williams, yesterday kept her followers updated on the birth of her son.

There have been tweets from the Tour de France, Twittering from the White House and even tweets from outer space.

And last night the wife of the CEO of Twitter was Twittering from the hospital where she was in labour. That's right... tweeting during the childbirth process.

Sara Morishige Williams, who is married to Twitter CEO Evan Williams, gave her nearly 15,000 followers an update late last night that labour had begun. "Dear Twitter, My water broke. It wasn't like Charlotte in Sex and the City. Now, timing contractions on an iPhone app," she tweeted.

Over the next 14 hours, Williams gave periodic updates. They ran from: "The Contraction Tracker was fun until the contractions got painful," to "Epidural, yes please."

Her husband was going Twitter silent until a little before 4pm EDT yesterday when he wrote: "Yes! @sara gave birth to a perfect baby boy. Both are well. 8 pounds, 21 inches! Smiles all around."
