Lastminute.com has created a interactive mood map based on tweets to measure the mood of the nation. To reveal how moody they’re feeling Brits just need to tag their messages on Twitter with #goodmood or #badmood, their location and a description of their mood.

Lastminute.com mood mapLastminute.com, who we last heard from when they’d made an Android app, have created a interactive mood map based on tweets to measure the mood of the nation. To reveal how moody they’re feeling Brits just need to tag their messages on Twitter with #goodmood or #badmood, their location and a description of their mood.

The site developed the Mood Of The Nation Twitter map after some research discovered that people we’re feeling in a better mood at the start of 2010 than they had been in 2009. But with snow causing travel chaos does the nation still feel as perky?

You can check out the Mood Of The Nation map now to see what Britain’s feeling – happy regions glow pink (conveniently the colour of Lastminute.com’s logo) while grumpy regions are appropriately grey. Mark Bower, Lifestyle Expert at Lastminute.com (and a man who’s job sounds uttely made up) says: “We want the map to act as a gauge so we know in real time how the nation is feeling.”
