New Twitter Analysis Tool, Dr. TweetDreams

Monday, 12 October 2009

A few weeks ago, I had a very weird dream. Which, of course, I now can’t remember. But I do remember thinking “wouldn’t it be great if I could Tweet about my dream, and a dream analysis doctor or dictionary would tell me what it meant?” Unfortunately, no such service was available. Until today.

Twitter Dream Analysis

That’s the beauty of having a geeky, programmer-prone boyfriend: you tell them this random, yet very cool idea you had, and a few weeks later, it’s a reality! Dr. TweetDreams, which we are affectionately calling an @alison and @danzarrella project, goes live today.

See what your dreams mean by putting in your Twitter username and undergoing a sophisticated dream analysis that uses Gustavus Hindman Miller’s dream dictionary and some linguistic processing that I don’t fully understand, but sounds very scientific. You can also browse through other Twitter users’ recent dreams.

Try Tweeting about last night’s dream, then visit Dr. TweetDreams to see what it means–and be sure to share your analysis on Twitter. We’ll continue working on this and playing with new features, so try it out and let me know what you think!
