this device reads your brain signals related to speech , femto seconds before you physically speak foul language the device censors your speech by broadcasting loudly, bird chirping sounds (or complete bird songs for curse laden diatribes) to drown out bad words.

so the device reads your speech thoughts, listens to what words you are speaking and then makes bird noise at just the right moment to tweet = bleep what you say

       A little less dependent on "sufficiently advanced technology:" A portable 3- second delay <link>. Speech-recognition software is available off the shelf, unlike mind-reading software.

       Thing is, a bleep or tweet works fine on the tv because that noise replaces the normal audio signal - in real life, all it would do is accentuate the swearing, by surrounding it with an additional "highlight" of noise. If the invention is to censor, rather than accentuate bad language, then it probably isn't going to work. If however, you really want people to really sit up and listen whenever you swear, then this is the answer.
