Fathers of teenaged daughters around the world may soon be able to breathe a little easier when their princess goes out on a date with the invention of the “Tweeting Bra,” designed by a Greek marketing group as part of a campaign for October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The social networking bra utilizes a special mechanism hidden under the hook of the bra. When it is unhooked, a signal is sent to a cell phone which in turn notifies a server that generates a tweet.
Popular Greek TV presenter, Maria Bacodimou, wore the tweeting bra for two weeks. Any time her bra came off, a tweet was sent out to her roughly 150 K followers reminding them to perform breast self-exams.
So, while currently the tweeting bra isn’t on sale in stores, the day can’t be too far off when young men around the globe will exclaim, “Geez! Is that a phone call from your Dad again? How does he know every time we start to make out?”
