Add this to the list of extraordinary (in every sense of the word) uses of Twitter. A psychic in the UK plans to conduct what The Sun is calling “the world’s first online séance” using the microblogging service. The name? You guessed it: Tweance.
The Tweance will take place on October 30th (to mark Halloween), and users are being asked to tweet their nominations for the four celebrities that they would like the psychic – Jaynce Wallace – to contact. She will then post the “Q&A” to Twitter (Twitter).
I’m not going to comment on Wallace’s supposed clairvoyance, but it does seem worth noting that there seems to be a promotional tie-in, as the Tweance Twitter account is promoting a store in the UK that sells Halloween costumes. Are there enough people wanting to talk to Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, or the late Michael Jackson to make it at least marginally successful? Probably so.
Meanwhile, which dead celebs do you want to hear from in 140 characters or less? Share your nominations in the comments.
