Well it's too bad someone's apparently already named their baby Hashtag.
A very, very perfect candidate for that social media moniker arrived this morning in Houston, delivered via C-section. And Twitter.
Women's Memorial Hermann Hospital live-tweeted the birth of a baby boy Wednesday morning, in a pretty fantastic online event full of delivery room play-by-play, 140-character medical lessons, and a newborn baby photo album's worth of pictures and videos which are definitely not for the squeamish.
We've already followed along as a Seattle hospital performed a cochlear implant on a woman who'd lost her hearing and as the National Zoo made everyone uncomfortable by live-tweeting a panda insemination.
So now, the social media sub-sub-subgenre of broadcasting fascinating medical events returns with the ultimate one-upping of any parent who posts pictures online after their baby is born: posting pictures online as the baby is born.
Here are some of the best moments (full feed of tweets @HoustonHospital):
