Wake up! A 3 a.m. phone call is your ticket into this nocturnal social network
July 14, 2013
The average phone call is about three minutes and 15 seconds long, and usually happens sometime in the afternoon. Talking on the phone is actually quickly becoming an antiquated act altogether, what with the Facebook Messaging and WhatsApping and Snapchatting and the simpler-yet texting. Why talk when you can text or tweet?
But there is a very strange corner of the Internet that is still making use of the phone call: Call in the Night describes itself as “an experimental radio show and telephone network documenting the nighttime experience.” Essentially, you sign up to connect with random strangers for late-night chat sessions. By late night, I mean 2 a.m., 3 a.m. in the morning late (or rather, early) – a call that, without notice, interrupts your sleep … and records and can broadcast your entire conversation.
