Twitter Proves Mondays Suck


It turns out that the "case of the Mondays" is actually a thing.

Well at least according to our friends at Twitter.

Twitter data analyst Simon Rogers went through millions of tweets and did a bunch of science stuff to figure out the most active days with key words.

Rogers spoke about the data collection,

"looking at the usage of different words and phrases in 2013 by day of the week and month tells you a lot about how the world tweets. We turned that data set into a ratio of Tweets containing those words in English per million posted."


Taking a look at some of the graphs, it turns out that people are hungover a lot.


Turns out that Tuesdays and Wednesdays in January were bad in 2013, which could be because of New Years, but Sundays in March are rough, and apparently people got to know the bottle pretty well on Thursdays and Fridays in November.

You will most likely be sad when summer is starting to slow down but without a doubt the saddest part of the year is in December.


And this is probably not that hard to believe but you are most likely to be late for work between Monday-Thursday in July.


Finally, according to Twitter most people were happiest on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in December. With the bulk majority of tweets probably linking to the holidays.
