We all have our angels and devils, which are occasionally revealed on social media. Where in the United States are Twitter users more likely to be good than bad?

We analyzed more than one hundred thousand geotagged tweets in some of America’s most populous cities to identify where the most virtuous hashtags, such as #faith, #hope, and #charity, are used and where some of the more wicked hashtags, such as #pride, #lazy, and #angry, are most prevalent.

Excellence Is the Winner

Twitter revealed that more Americans possess virtues such as #charity, #justice, and #moderation than vices such as #gluttony, #greed, and #pride.



Charity-related hashtags like as #give, #donate, and #volunteer were more popular than any other category. In 2015, about 63 million Americans volunteered their time, equivalent to $173 billion worth of labor. And although 40 percent of Americans gave less than $500 to charity, 34 percent gave more than $2,500. People from Utah, which rated among our most charitable states, donated the most money.


However, a few of the states had a negative side. Sin City is located in Nevada, where greed was mentioned more than any other characteristic. We cannot even fathom why.


On Twitter, Virtue Is Virtual

How much can we learn from Twitter’s 140-character limit? More than you may believe. In terms of the virtue of hashtags, tweets from particular states were more likely to contain good terms such as #justice, #faith, and #charity.



While #charity was one of the most popular Twitter call signs in the United States, #justice was more prevalent in states such as New York, New Mexico, Nebraska, and Kansas. New Mexico is one of the most ethnically varied states, giving its residents various perspectives on what is fair and reasonable.


Other states with virtuous Twitter habits such as #courage, #bravery, and #endurance, which comprise fortitude, were Florida, Nevada, Virginia, and Pennsylvania, while Colorado stood alone with #temperance-themed tweets.


On Twitter, Irreligious Expressions

Being nice has its moments, but being terrible is undeniably alluring.



The majority of Americans appear to have some knowledge of both. While virtuous-themed tags may have supplanted wicked ones as the most popular in most areas, sinful deeds continued to stand up everywhere we surveyed. Obviously, gluttony took the cake, to use a metaphor. In nations with amazing culinary scenes, such as New York and California, there are lots of alternatives to satisfy your hunger. Americans are notorious for their diets high in saturated fat, carbohydrates, and salt.


And in Southern states such as Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, and Georgia, where soul food reigns supreme, #FoodPorn is abundant. All excellent things should be enjoyed in moderation. Of course, gluttony is one of the seven deadly sins.


Nevada, New Mexico, and Arkansas topped the list in terms of #greed. With hashtags like #desire, #mine, and #gaming, it’s no surprise that Las Vegas, Nevada, has a reputation as one of the most sinful (and entertaining) towns in the United States.


As Icarus discovered when he flew too near to the sun, pride is as fatal a vice as avarice and gluttony. When it comes to tweets including the hashtags #swag, #humblebrag, and #proud, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming produced the most boastful tweets.


Evil cities

Which regions made our list of the ten most sinful cities in the United States?



It finds out that New York City has the most hashtags associated with pride, rage, gluttony, and sloth. With almost 4,900 tweets using the hashtags #proud and #instagood, though, pride appears to be its most natural fault. New Yorkers are recognized for having a certain degree of pride in, well, New York. These tweets may originate from New York residents as well as tourists travelling through one of the country’s most popular tourist sites.


New York was not the best in every area, though. Boca Raton, Florida, rated as the city with the most #jealous hashtags. South Florida is frequently referred to as New York’s “sixth borough,” so it’s not surprising that Boca Raton and New York City have many similarities (mostly the residents). New York yet had the second-most tweets of envy.


While Las Vegas topped the list for greed and Fort Walton Beach, Florida, for desire (think #sexy and #datass), Los Angeles, Chicago, and Miami were other significant wicked towns.


Virtue Over Vice

New York may have the most wicked hashtags, but it leads the pack in terms of good comments. New York City tweets utilized the most hashtags like #believe, #give, #loyalty, and #save in relation to faith, hope, charity, fortitude, justice, and prudence. Those who tweet from the urban jungle may like feasting on excellent cuisine and bragging about their vacations and purchases, but they also appear to be generous and friendly.


Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco were also among the top 10 cities with the most virtuous tweets relating to charity and justice (#volunteer and #fair, to mention a few).


Austin (charity and fortitude), Philadelphia (fortitude), and Seattle were also known for their virtuous qualities (justice and hope).


Virtuous Hotspots That The Entire City Enjoys


While New York City-tagged tweets had the most hashtags referencing the seven deadly sins and seven heavenly virtues, other American cities also made the list.


It turns out that Las Vegas is the only city with the most criminal hashtags. Nevertheless, several of these cities also used hashtags such as #justice, #fair, and #give. While these cities are occasionally capable of evil behavior, they have a soft place for decency and charity.



We extracted one hundred thousand of the most recent tweets with geocoded hashtags and split them by the population size of the cities to see who reported the seven deadly sins the most per ten thousand citizens. We searched for the following hashtags: #proud, #instagood, #swag, #humblebrag, #jealous, #mad, #angry, #pissedoff, #foodporn, #nom, #sexy, #datass, #FWB, #lazy, #chill, #want, #mine, #gambling, #gambler, #betting, and #greedy; and the seven heavenly virtues: #fait
