Teen Mom: Amber Portwood's daughter Leah gets her own Twitter account.

Little Leah is only two years old, but her dad Gary Shirley thought it was a fun idea to give the toddler her own Twitter account. Gary thought that it would be a good way for Teen Mom fans to keep up to date regarding everything Leah-related. She could share photos and keep in contact with fans.

His plan has most certainly come with a lot of criticism attached, as many followers said that it would expose Leah to 'the evils of internet'. One person tweeted, "no one would make a #twitter for their child. You’re just asking for drama and attention." Another, more serious comment read "its not safe with all these creeps around for a baby to have a twitter weather she’s using it or not in my opinion."

Gary was quick to reply and defend himself. He tweeted, "You guys, it should be obvious that Leah has no contact w Twitter. This is just a fun concept that will in no way affect Leah herself." He continued, "I protect my daughter. This is for her sayings, things she’s doing, ect.. its all me tweeting…."

No word on what Amber thinks of all this. Could it be that baby's first Twitter account will become just as popular as baby's first Facebook page?
