Garbage research. Leave it to a "data scientist" (an utterly stupid concept) to ignore the importance of methods. How accurately do Twitter users represent the population? How accurately do their tweets represent their general mood? Has the population of Twitter users remained constant in its representation of the population? Truly, this is idiocy cloaked in quantification.

We’re not “all in the same misery.” I’ve been having a wonderful/happy year, for which I don’t apologize.

by far one of their worst episodes. Talking about rudimentary app that analyzes words for 33 minutes. And at the end they just say that you need self care and happiness, duh. This show used to be fun, with mystery, drama, talking about cool tech. But now more and more episodes become disappointing.
