Tweeting feelings

It was only a matter of time before someone at Twitter began mining tweets for keywords to help us understand the Twitter-verse.

In today's official Twitter blog, they tell us what they learned when they looked at aggregated tweets to see when we are happy and when we are sad and when we are hungover.

Seems that we tweet most about sadness on a Sunday in December or a Monday in October. Tweets about happiness hover around a Tuesday in December and a Tuesday in January. And people tweet most often about being hungover on Sundays in March (St. Patrick's Day?) and Thursdays and Fridays in November (Thanksgiving?).

I see a lot of tweets about the miserable weather this winter. Wonder if that's a trend nationally.
