A recent study shows that social phenomenon Twitter can cause mood swings.Â Cornell University researchers studied 500 million tweetsÂ from more than 2 million people in 84 different countries. They analyzed when people tweeted words like “awesome,” “agree,” “annoyed,” and “afraid” to find out when people were happiest. The study showed during 6 and 9 a.m. people are generally very positive.
However throughout the course of the day, peopleâ€™s mood changed dramatically, before â€œpicking up steamâ€ at 4 p.m. The study also showed people tweeted profanity the most when they were not happy. And to any surprise people were least happy on Mondays. Oddly enough people tweeted to prefer bacon over sausages for breakfast. Well, people tweeted their love for bacon more. So besides being able to talk, and keep track of your friends, celebrities, or random people, we can now add mood swings to that equation.
What do you think of this recent research? Would you agree?
