Northeastern and Harvard university researchers have gathered Twitter data to show how U.S. residents feel throughout a typical day or week. The background is here.
“It will surprise almost no one to learn that there is a general mood slump mid-day and mid-week, when we are most likely to be at work. Our tweets show that we’re happiest in the early morning and late evening; during the week, our mood tends to peak on Sunday morning,” according to the report on Mashable.
“Less predictable, perhaps, is the fact that West Coast tweets were ‘happier’ than tweets from the East Coast. Although West Coast Twitter users expressed emotions in the same cycles as the East Coast users (with a three-hour gap, of course, because of time zone differences), the West Coasters didn’t dip as low in mood as the East Coasters by a significant margin.”
Some of the best infographics from this year are here.
