Morning is the world's happy time, says Twitter

WASHINGTON (AFP) - People around the world are happiest in the morning, according to a US study on Thursday that analysed hundreds of millions of messages on the microblogging site Twitter. Cornell University sociologists used language software to detect the presence of positive words in 509 million tweets from 2.4 million users in 84 different countries over a two-year period. Mood peaks were detected early in the day but began to dip mid-morning, about the time most people are starting their workdays. Another positive peak was witnessed around midnight, followed by a 'sharp drop in NA (negative affect, including distress, fear, anger, guilt, and disgust) during the overnight hours', said the study in the journal Science.
