Twitter Analyzed: The Farther Away We Are, The Happier We Are

Some brainy people at the University of Vermont studied “37 million tweets from 180,000 individuals in 2011 that also gave their location. They then characterized the movement associated with each individual.”

The study basically concluded that the farther we are from our average tweeting location, the happier we are.

The researchers say tweets authored thousands of kilometers from from an individual’s expected location are more likely to contain the words “beach,” “great,” “restaurant” and so on and less likely to contain negative words such as “no,” “don’t,” “hate” and the suchlike. However, when people are closer to their average location, they are more likely to laugh using words like “hahaha.”
