Could be they’ve got too much time on their hands, but researchers sifted though 10 million geotagged tweets to determine the happiest and saddest American places. Happy: Hawaii! Napa Valley! Sad: Louisiana; Beaumont, Texas! So how’d they decide? According to The Atlantic, researchers at the Vermont Complex Systems Center (PDF) assigned a happiness quotient to tweeted words. Rainbow, love, beauty, hope, LOL, wonderful, haha, sleep, and wine, for instance are super happy, while expletives and words such as ugly and hate are definite downers.
Not to be outdone by those happy Hawaiians and tipsy wine sippers in Napa Valley, we challenged ourselves to come up with the cheeriest tweet imaginable. Here goes:
#world‘s happiest tweet: Loving wonderful #wine under beautiful #rainbow at super nice #beach!! Hope to sleep great tonight—LOL!! Haha!!
Are we happy or what? As for the saddest tweet? We won’t *%#&! go there. LOL!
