We’ve described many dresses as “electrifying,” but this is the first one that is literally so.
To help celebrate the launch of EE (Everything Everywhere), the UK’s first 4G mobile network, Nicole Scherzinger wore the world’s first-ever live Twitter dress. She was undoubtedly dressed for the occasion and in accordance with the hi-tech theme of the event.

The semi-sheer black chiffon gown by CuteCircuit is adorned with over 3,000 Swarovski crystals and over 2,000 LED lights. The skirt panel displayed a live feed of Tweets sent in by those who tweeted @EE and the hashtag #tweetthedress.
We couldn’t make out any of the tweets sent in any of Nicole Scherzinger’s pictures. Still, perhaps that’s for the best because you can just imagine how something interactive like this can lead to hilarious, scandalous, or even disastrous results in the blink of an eye.
This is about as much as you can read of the Tweets on Nicole Scherzinger’s dress:

In case you’re wondering, the battery-charged dress is rechargeable via USB. Do you think light-up dresses will be a thing in the future or remain a novelty fad?
