Yes, you read that correctly. A recent press release from Northeastern University in Boston revealed a project to chart how happy Americans are based on their twitter posts. We had to share this; it is such an excellent result of mixing social media and neuroscience. Like the press release mentions, using Twitter as a way to capture the feeling of a moment in time is raw, real, and possible. It is a researcher’s goldmine, and it can help answer a lot of different questions, including the happiness quotient of Americans. (Shameless plug: you should follow us on twitter: exploringmind . And while you’re at it, like us on facebook , too. We will be posting exclusive content, as well as contests, news, and general science research, etc.)
