    Death Tweets?

    Mother sparks outrage by tweeting as rescue workers try to save dying two-year-old son | Mail Online

    Yesterday, a police spokesman said Ross’s 11-year-old son, who had been cleaning out the chicken coup at the family’s home in Merritt Island, Florida, had called an ambulance after noticing his brother had fallen into the water.

    Ross sent her first tweet at 10.22pm British time on Monday – just a minute before the 999 call was made.
    i find this to be horrifying. is it an addiction, or is she a narcissist? both?

    8445 tweets? Wow, definitely addictive behavior.

    I wouldn't see a problem with posting about the death - she was a pro blogger, and many use twitter almost as a chatroom, so, it would be a place she'd seek support from friends.

    Posting even before calling 911 (if that's what happened, and the time stamps aren't out of sync) is completely unbelievable, though.

    Neither. It's stupidity, plain and simple.

    Totally bizarre. I don't get this tweeting, don't do it, never will. Yes, it's narcissistic.

    This woman had 5000 subscribers, the article says. I'll bet the woman is so wrapped up in her Twitter world that she wasn't watching her son well enough. Doesn't she have a fence around her pool? Shouldn't a 2 year old be supervised?

    This woman made some telling comments in response to her critics

    In response to her critics, Ross said, "Anybody who is attacking me on Twitter is a small-minded a**hole who deserves to rot in hell."

    "People who are attacking me are just trying to drive attention to their blogs," she added.

    Crap, I am really disappointed. When I saw the title of the thread, I came right in, believing that Sylvester the Cat had finally caught that obnoxious little bugger.

    My guess would be that this is akin to
    "Muchausin's by Proxy." I'd guess further, that this was not a true accident.
