Bristol psychologist seeking tweets about dreams

A Bristol academic is to take part in a worldwide experiment to collect and analyse people's dreams using the social networking service Twitter.

Dr Jennifer Parker, of the University of the West of England, is asking people from around the world to tweet their dreams to her on Monday.

The 10 judged the best will be analysed by Dr Parker, who is a member of the Association for the Study of Dreams.

The top 10 tweeted dreams will appear on

They will be posted on Friday 30 April.

Dr Parker, who is from the university's psychology department, said even the dreams that will not be analysed publicly will help her with her research.

The contest is being run by streaming service blinkbox.
