Those without access to Twitter

Posted by raverlampman on 04 Aug 2013 at 13:27 GMT

One variable in this is the access to technology. In a place such as Hawaii, for instance, those without access to technology and who don't do Twitter might be less happy than people who do Twitter because the technology itself filters for income. It would be interesting to do a correlation with the percentages of people in these happy places who have access to Twitter. There would certainly be a far higher percentage in Switzerland than in Hawaii, where there's a significant underclass.
