Worth perhaps momentary interest:

twitter-map-shows-where-the-biggest-jerks-live?.

(Maybe some of us should have a talk with our neighbors?)

Southern Hospitality. Yankees do tend to be hateful and mean.

Why is Houston a red zone? They must be very bad-tempered there!

A map is totally useless without a key.

Looks like Houston has a problem.

I linked to the "news" report at MSNBC.

There is a "source" link at the bottom of that page that should take you to the "interactive map" where MSNBC got the story, probably with more details; but as I said "my interest was only worth a moment" so I didn't look to see how much more might be at the "real" map.

I noted that Kansas didn't show much, which I attribute to the majority here who hardly think anything at all unless their preacher tells them what to think, so they mostly have "no comment" unless it's real honest bible-based (or TeaParty Republican - much the same) HATE - which seems to be mostly in the extreme southeast corner of the state(?).

Maybe the people in the blank areas of the map have better things to do with their time than twitter away...

If the map was compiled by mining Twitter messages* which specifically use the phrase "Fuck you", then the research is subject to regional and dialect-based errors.

For example, many messages originating south of the Mason-Dixon line would probably say "Fuck y'all!" and those originating in NYC or New Jersey would likely say "Hey! Go fuck ya'self!"

Unless the search algorithm was sufficiently fine-tuned to recognize such regional variants, the reseach cannot be considered 100% accurate.


* I'll call Twitter messages "tweets" when someone holds a gun to my head and forces me to do so.

I clicked on the "source" link and saw a map for another offensive word, not a key, which is what I was looking for. Both maps as shown have cut off most of New England. Whew! Sometimes being left out is a relief.

I am glad that other people are willing to care bout Twitter so that I do not have to.
