Geeks at Northeastern University have plotted more than 300 million tweets over three years. The results is a series of neat cartograms that map the mood of twitter users across America. Using a psychological word-rating system, the tweets suggest that the west coast is happier than the east coast, and that national happiness peaks each Sunday morning and crashes Thursday evenings. Roger Ebert couldn't wait to tweet this!
