Always wanted to talk to Houdini, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, John Lennon, Kurt Cobain or Michael Jackson? Well, now you can, and via Twitter no less. This Friday (October 30th) Medium Jayne Wallace is hosting the world’s first interactive Twitter Séance aptly titled ‘Twéance’.
You can nominate your favorite dead celebrity via Twitter before Friday and even pass on your questions. On friday morning Jayne will start her ‘Twéance’, not by tweeting the questions (“Hey @JohnLennon! Whazzup!?!?!?!”) but by asking the questions the good old ‘traditional’ psychic way. The replies she will apparently tweet, on @Tweance.
I know you just have to believe these kind of things but somewhere I get the feeling that this isn’t a watertight system. I mean, I see some room for gaming the system, right?
But maybe I’m just being cynical. Anyway, here is a list of 25 guaranteed dead people you can follow today. No Medium needed:
Ernest Hemingway, Edgar Allan Poe, William Shakespeare, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Jean Baudrillard, Marshall McLuhan, Susan Sontag, Sigmund Freud, Confucius, Andy Warhol, John Locke, Friedrich Neitzsche, Carl Jung, J.W. von Goethe, Karl Heinrich Marx, Gandhi, Charles Darwin, Walt Whitman, George Washington, William S. Burroughs, Julia Child, Buddha, Albert Einstein, Thomas Jefferson, Jacques Lacan.
