Tweets containing hateful words are coming in larger proportions from people living in the eastern half of the United States, according to a new map that tracked hate speech on Twitter. How much hate people are broadcasting online is a little shocking and upsetting, said Monica Stephens, assistant professor of geography at Humboldt State University in Arcata, Calif. The map is based on tweets that were scanned for hate words that are homophobic, racist or demeaning to people with disabilities.

Oh yes. Lake Havasu AZ with 20K pop has more hate than Los Angeles...which shows none at all....
hip hop fans call each other awful names all the time....
Rap is full of N-——, B——, etc.
Some black people routinely call each other the N word.
One gang threatening another...Big news..
This is B S.
Now I would like to see the REVERSE of that (if accurate), in other words, disparaging or discriminatory and biased/bigoted comments against CHRISTIANS on Twitter, and where they are primarily coming from.
They're probably counting Bible quotes.
I think one of the blobs on the map was spotted over a BET show.
We need an International Gang Union...Former, present etc..Everyone must get involved so things can be fixed....Our honor must be restored!!
I received a series of tweets a while back on my cell phone that used the N-word and some gang slang. I thought it was somebody playing a joke. I finally called the number and it was black guy living in a town about 30 miles away. He apologized saying my number was similar to one he called frequently.
I guess I’m an old codger because I wouldn’t know how to twitter....I mean tweet.
I don't want to hear about gays, pay for the lazy and immoral or hear Obama and his minions lie their a***** off.
DC and Hollywood

I hate reports liek htis
What’s a tweet?
Seriously.......I have never sent one....and I hate a lot of people....LOL
Your probably like me, its no ones business about my day to day activities, what I had for breakfast, what I want to do tomorrow etc. Some people seem to think their 150 + followers really give a da..n.don’t twitter, tweet or have a face page....I figure those that do must feel important..thats sad....
LOL-You’re right. The young people are the biggest gossipers now.
I have no use for all the “social media”, either.
Heck, we remember party lines on the telephone.
Had forgotten about party lines, and if carefull could listen in. Sometimes you had more than 1 party on your line...could be as much as 3 if I remember correctly..
I remember the listening in part but I think party lines went out before I was too old. I was born in 1951.
I do remember some old crank phones.
This is another example of libs getting the results they want hby selecting the questions. was there any measure of anti-Christian tweets, anti-conservative tweets, anti-Republican tweets? Anti - Jewish tweets?
I was born in 1955. We had a party line up until the early 1970’s!
What a total and complete waste of time and bandwidth.
Looks like a NOAA t-storm map.
who defines “hateful”?
This is crap, BTW...
Well, that just lost my interest in the article, now that I now what they're labeling as "Hate Speech".
There's a lot of hate out there targeted at Christians, and the right, in general, and anyone who doesn't believe in the liberal way of thinking and who doesn't march lockstep (goosestep?) with all its beliefs.
The left loves to say how it has the youth vote. And the "twitterverse" is a bastion of that same constituency. If there's a lot of hate, mathematically speaking, it's easy to tell where most of it is coming from.
It is mostly idiot kids, movie stars and others with a lot of time on their hands who know how to use technology and a lot of Obama voters............I have never sent a tweet and don’t know anyone who does.
I think a map of the population density of the US would look about the same...
A lot of “self-selection” going on here. Like/Like. Any correlation with heavy voting for socialism is mere coincidence.
Looks like two generations of liberal (er, “progressive”) scolding about race has been a waste of time.
“Hate” terms like fag? Queer? Sodomite? Anally-obsessed perverts who play with feces?
Hey, Cronkleton, be sure to slap a few more numbers down for central Virginia...I can keep ‘em coming.
I started tweeting only to advertise my blog and webcomic. Coworkers found me, so I *had to* friend a couple of them. I rarely exchange tweets with anyone other than when there’s a new comic. I’ll sometimes respond to a direct question from someone, but I usually refer them to the blog where there’s more space for that.
And we all survived without cell phones. LOL
I am a bit older, 1939 and using the telephone was a big deal to kids...but the best thing ever invented was indoor plumbing....LOL on my grandma’s farm, a chamber pot under the bed for nighttime, hand water pump in the “laundry” room. Yep, indoor plumbing is not appreciated enought...:O)
. Yep, indoor plumbing is not appreciated enought...:O)
LOL You’re exactly right.
