With celebrities attracting some of the biggest followings on Twitter, it's probably not all that surprising to see a celebrity step out in a dress that can literally display tweets in real-time. The creation of London-based fashion company CuteCircuit, the Haute Couture Twitter Dress was worn by former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger at the launch party of the EE 4G mobile network in the U.K.

The dress is embedded with LEDs and recharges via USB. Tweets scroll across the dress and are readable even in a dark setting, such as a launch party like this one held at the Battersea Power Station in London. You could say the dress made a "powerful" statement, but to call it practical might be an overstatement.

Unfortunately, we missed the boat to send our tweets for the dress in time for the party, but you can feel free to send some to the hashtag "#tweetthedress" and maybe somewhere, someone will be looking at the dress and reading your pearls of wisdom.

Besides light up tweets, the dress is actually made of some premium material, including french silk chiffon speckled with some 3,000 glittering Swarovski crystals. Certainly, this dress would not be cheap. However, it's not listed for sale on CuteCircuit's website, so it might just be a one off thing. However, there are other light up dresses on the site, so maybe it will be for sale at some point.

The video below lets you see the dress receiving and displaying tweets as it's worn.

Could you imagine the embarrassment when someone hacks your DRESS with inappropriate material?
