Forget funeral selfies. What are the ethics of tweeting a terminal illness? [@emmagkeller for theguardian.com]
Lisa Bonchek Adams is dying. She has Stage IV breast cancer and now it\’s metastasized to her bones, joints, hips, spine, liver and lungs. She\’s in terrible pain. She knows there is no cure, and she wants you to know all about what she is going through. Adams is dying out loud. On her blog and, especially, on Twitter.
She has tweeted over 100,000 times about her health. Lately, she tweets dozens of times an hour. Her Twitter followers are a mixed bag. Some are also battling cancer or work in the medical field, others seem to follow Adams\’ life story like a Reality TV show.
