NPR host Scott Simon memorializes his mother on Twitter

In mid-July, NPR host Scott Simon began sharing the last days of his mother’s life with his 1.2 million Twitter followers. Some may cringe at the thought of sharing such intimate moments on social media but others see it as a tribute to her legacy. Simon reflects on how it helped him get through his grieving and what it says about our culture. Photo: courtesy of blogs.trb.com
