In honor of The Fourth of July, the analysts decided to celebrate the US' patchwork society by exploring and mapping local patterns in social media using their new geo-data project, DOLLY (Data On your Local Life and You).
For this particular exercise they counted Twitter mentions of either 'beer' or 'church' in every US county, and then assigned each a rating according to which of the two words came out on top and by what margin...
Counties colored in red are those where 'church' came out on top, while 'beer' Tweets won out in blue areas. The darker the shade of color, the more dominant that word was.
White areas indicate counties where the two were roughly equal, while gray denotes missing data.
Tweets including 'beer' were most dominant in San Francisco (191, compared to 41 for 'church'), with Dallas, Texas showing the biggest margin in favor of 'church' (178 to 83).
