NPR’s Scott Simon takes Twitter to a new frontier: His mother’s hospital bed

On July 23, Scott Simon, the longtime host of NPR’s Weekend Edition Saturday, posted a tweet to his 1.2 million followers: “I just want to say that ICU nurses are remarkable people. Thank you for what you do for our loved ones.”

The tweet immediately preceding that one was about Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun. That week, Simon also tweeted about watching “Ultimate Survival Alaska,” about eating tamales, about a strange dream featuring Ed Koch. A typical Twitter feed, semi-entertaining from a semi-famous person, whose career has been built on inviting listeners into his life. More @ The Washington Post.
