Twitter study finds Georgia is a sad state

Your tweets say a lot about your state of mind. And apparently Georgians are sad.

So researchers figured when they analyzed 10 million tweets to determine the happiest and most depressed cities and states in the country. Tweeted words like "awesome," happy," and "sweet" earned people happiness points. Bummer tweets with words like "nasty," "bored," and "hated" upped the sadness score.

Turns out Georgia is the fifth most depressed state, right behind Louisiana, Mississippi, Maryland, and Delaware. Not all that surprising, Hawaii is the happiest.

When it comes to city, Albany, Ga, is the second saddest, behind only Beaumont, Texas.

Read the whole study (from researchers in Vermont -- one of the happiest states)...then tweet about it.
