Twitter, for those of you who don’t know, is a micro-blogging network where users send out quick little updates, just a few words to subscriber lists. Now, it’s entered the labor and delivery room.

MTV is reporting that Grammy Award-winning soul singer Erykah Badu and her rapper boyfriend, Jay Electronica, twittered every detail of their daughter’s birth on Sunday, from Badu’s first “Morning, I’m in labor” to Electronica’s awestruck “I see the head, full of hair.”

So now we’re curious. Very, very curious. Did you text through labor? Twitter? Set up a web cam?
