(Photo: Reuters/Charles Platiau) A prototype for the world’s first tweeting e-cigarette has been created by New York creative agency R/GA, Fast Company reported.

Claims that the harms of vaping are lesser than that of regular tobacco have prompted vapers to stay away from smoking areas. The FDA is now faced with the regulatory challenge of providing vaping areas separate from areas for smoking.
