Lance Armstrong And Anna Hansen Announce Birth Of Baby Boy On Twitter

By Robert Paul Reyes


"Why wait for France? Lance Armstrong can pop that bottle of champagne now.

He announced the birth of son Max during a break between the Giro d`Italia and the Tour de France next month. Max is Armstrong`s fourth child.

The 37-year-old cycling great posted a message on his Twitter account Thursday night and included a picture of the newborn, playfully sticking out his tongue at the camera." The Associated Press

It`s becoming more common for celebrities, as well as average Americans, to announce important events in their lives on Twitter.

Passing around photographs of your newborn to your co-workers is so 1990s, today proud parents are more likely to post pics of their baby on Twitter.

A few weeks ago I was talking to an old friend on the phone, and I was surprised that she was aware of some of the things that were going on in my life because she checked my Twitter and Facebook accounts.

I offer my congratulations to Lance Armstrong, I hope he posts more pics of his delightful baby on his Twitter account.

It won`t be long before Lance or another celebrity informs his spouse and the world that he has filed for divorce on Twitter.

Twitter isn`t just for celebrities, if you don`t have a Twitter account you barely qualify as a human being.
