White House correspondent reports his own heart attack on Twitter

By

(WIREUPDATE) — White House corespondent Tommy Christopher with Mediaite.com may have made Social Network history as being the first person ever to update his or her Twitter page while having a heart attack. This claim is unverified and likely inaccurate, but nonetheless, it takes a courageous reporter to inform the public even in personal trying times.

Approximately at 6pm on Sunday afternoon Christopher wrote, “I gotta be me. Livetweeting my heart attack. Beat that!” Presumably a few minutes later the paramedics arrived to tell Christopher he will be stable after his crisis.


An hour later Christopher joked about needing to own a cardiac cat, referencing a viral video in which a cat is trying to revive his dead feline friend. He also updated his followers about the pain he was feeling, “even after the morphine.”

Well wishes to Christopher and his family!

    I believe you totally misinterpreted his comment that he is “going to get a cardiac cat”.
    What he likely meant is that he was going to undergo a cardiac catheterization. Shorted to cardiac cath in medical lingo. His tweet may have been a typo and not referring to that video at all.
