The Vermont Complex Systems Center orchestrated a compelling review of happiness throughout the United States via Twitter. The company examined tweets based on where they were posted, unveiling compelling data on the feelings of the American population.

This study was done by way of a careful literary review. The Vermont Complex Systems Center monitored tweets with a specific look at the words beauty and love versus boo and lied.

According to the statistics, California's Napa region is one of the most content places to live in all of America. By contrast, Texas' Beaumont is among the saddest. Interestingly, the data unveils a connection between warm weather and happier states of mind as cheerful tweets peak in the west and decline throughout the east.
