Twitter users have attempted to speak to departed pop stars in the world's first seance on the social networking site.
The move was a paranormal publicity stunt by a fancy dress shop in London ahead of Hallowe'en
The shop, Angels Fancy Dress, let Tweeters vote on who they wanted to contact and the final list was made up of Michael Jackson, Kurt Cobain, William Shakespeare and River Phoenix.
Tweeters taking part chose questions for the foursome and their 'answers' were tweeted online.
The seance was run by psychic Jayne Wallace, who allegedly contacted the spirit of Jade Goody - who died in March this year - for her mother Jackiey Budden.
Ms Wallace reported that Jade wanted to apologise to her mother for not listening to her about marrying Jack Tweed, saying it was the "biggest mistake she ever made".
Michael Jackson was said to be singing when Ms Wallace made contact. He later "tweeted" he should have asked for help but he was now at peace.
During the Twitter seance, River Phoenix was said to have apologised to his family for the way he died and claimed his brother was the better actor.
Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain allegedly caused Ms Wallace physical pain before saying he was sorry drugs destroyed him.
The tweance failed to reach William Shakespeare.
A spokesman for Angels Fancy Dress said: "We've been amazed by the response we've had to this. We stopped counting at around 4,000 responses.
"And most people have been very positive.
"Jayne Wallace is very well respected in her profession and we thought that this, as well as being a world first, would be a good way of allowing people to interact with their heroes."
