Does inotify work with special files such as /proc/<pid>/task/<tid>/children?

I can't seem to get inotify to work with special files such as
/proc/<pid>/task/<tid>/children? I just need to get a simple yes/no
answer on whether it works for special files or whether I have to try
a different approach.

Thank you,
