Greetings from what Twitter tells us is the saddest place in America

John Moe Jul 22, 2010

A bunch of smarties from Harvard University and Northeastern University took data from 300 million tweets from around the country and inferred mood for different regions throughout the day. If you’re in California, life seems great. If you’re in Minnesota, like us, you’re sad all the time and you just never ever get happy.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.

Generous support from listeners and readers is what powers our nonprofit news—and your donation today will help provide this essential service. For just $5/month, you can sustain independent journalism that keeps you and thousands of others informed.
