People tweet about church more than beer

A US data analysis company selected two words – church and beer – that it felt exemplified an American cultural divide and analysed their usage on Twitter.

And according to the study by Floatingsheep.org, Americans tweet more about church than beer, and there is a distinct regional divide between the tweets.

Church tweets were most common in the south east US, while tweets about beer were most prevalent in the north east.

“We found out that there is a geography to what people tweet about, and there are some geographic differences to Twitter,” said Dr. Matthew Zook, a geography professor at the University of Kentucky and co-founder of Floating Sheep.

“You have these offline cultural differences that are being replicated in information space like Twitter.”

The group went through roughly 10 million geo-tagged tweets from June 22 to June 29 and found that 17,686 tweets were sent with the word “church,” while 14,405 tweets were sent containing the word “beer.”

San Francisco was the most beer-focused city in the US, while Dallas was the most focused on church.
