A report was released today stating that people wake up happier in the morning and get progressively less happy as the day wears on. The report used Twitter as the source of the research.
Analyzing more than 509 million tweets over a two year period, researchers Scott Golder and Professor Michael Macy of Cornell University studied trends in moods cited on Twitter. The men looked for key words that expressed positive or negative emotions, discovering that dispositions vary considerably depending on the time of day.
So, I looked back on my tweets from a couple days ago, just to see if the report is accurate.
Okay, sure it’s happy.. doesn’t prove anything.
Yeah, so? That was a good muffin.
Well, he did.
That guy smelled like rum too! And banana. It was soups grody.
OMG how SLOW was that bus moving? Kids WALKED to school in my day. But I guess that’s too much to ask.
NOT OKAY. Those people are crazy! And loud, and dirty. I can’t believe I live in such a dump.
I don’t see it. Report = fail.
