Mapping Profanity on Twitter

A heat map is a graphical representation of data where the different values are represented as colors.

1.5 million Tweets were tracked and distilled down to the cities with the cleanest and naughtiest Tweets.  It looks like it’s the dirty south, after all!  San Francisco and Cleveland have potty mouths, too.

(In this case, the brightest spots represent the cities that swear the most.)
