Twitter Tracks Its User's Moods

Posted: Updated:

If you've ever tweeted about your mood, you've contributed to some revealing data. Twitter has released new data that shows when we are at our best, but also when we are off our game. 

We often take to Twitter to vent frustrations or to declare when happy.  And turns out there is a pattern to our emotions that we can learn all from those 140 characters.  

Twitter pulled a massive amount of data together from all of the tweets send in 2013. They looked at the usage of different words and phrases and cataloged them by day of the week and month and it revealed a lot about our emotional routines.  

They found the time more people tweet that they, "feel sad" is on a Sunday in December or a Monday in October.  

When did people say they "felt happy"? A Tuesday in December or a Tuesday in January.

And this shouldn't come as a surprise -- Sundays in March as well as Thursdays and Fridays in November are the days that people most frequently tweeted that they were hungover.

And lastly, people tweeted that they ran late for work most commonly mid-week in July or Fridays in January.
