The e-cigarette linked to Twitter was conceived as a way to quit smoking altogether, as online the tweets give smokers valuable insight into their habit and advertise their desire to quit to their followers. Follow Us E-cigarettes are battery powered devices that provide smokers with an inhalable, nicotine-laced vapor by using a small coil to heat flavored liquid nicotine and water. As there is no tobacco, smokers, who exhale an odorless, smokeless vapor, can generally smoke the devices inside.

From device to packaging, e-cigarettes are designed to look exactly like a traditional cigarette but without the harsh flavor or burning sensation when inhaled. This would seem to produce a greater likelihood of second use, third use, and so forth, setting the user on a faster path to addiction and guaranteeing sales for years. Flavoring the "e-juice" with cherry, peach and menthol creates direct appeal to children and adolescents. Clever advertising by the tobacco industry makes e-cigarettes the perfect bridge to other addictive substances including conventional cigarettes.
