This man live-tweeted his mother’s death.
Scott Simon, the host of NPR’s Weekend Edition Saturday, was sitting by his mother’s bedside in the ICU as she slowly passed away. He was also tweeting throughout the days and hours he spent there: thoughtful, quiet tweets about what his mother was saying, what he was thinking, how his family was responding.
I just realized: she once had to let me go into the big wide world. Now I have to let her go the same way.
