Link between weather and mood, revealed by Twitter

Mark Wilson, reporting for Fast.Co Design:

“We tend to be predominantly more negative about the weather than positive,” shares Clever. “Our weather chart of this year provides several interesting observations; sunshine is prominent in the way most people rate the weather. The correlation between sunshine and weather sentiment is stronger than the correlation between weather rating and sentiment. So people are more likely to say something positive online about the weather, when the sun is out.”

It’s raining in Cambridge today. Just thought I’d put that out there.
