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.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
