Concept: In this experiment, approximately four million Tweets originating from Ireland were collected between September 21st and December 14th 2010. Tweets are short, information-rich messages that people around the world (including Ireland) post to Twitter. I mined Twitter and built algorithms that tagged the Tweets as being positive, negative or neutral. In doing this, I created a very accurate picture of how the emotions and moods of people in Ireland change and fluctuate over time.
