Description"Philadelphia is known as the City of Brotherly Love, but according to a new project, this love may not carry over to its Twitter users.

According to the online news source Mashable, a team called Vertaline started a new project called the “Twitter Heatmap,” which shows where the U.S.’s most polite and rude Twitter users are.

The team created the map by scanning tweets for the phrases: “Good Morning” and “F*** You” in 462 specific locations across the country.

Each phrase was tracked for about 10 days and the resulting map shows that the northeast may have some of the country’s rudest Twitter users.

However, what may come as a surprise – or maybe not for some – is that the highest concentration of rude Twitter users seems to be from the Philadelphia area.

It’s safe to say the project’s findings aren’t conclusive, but what do you think? Are you surprised to see Philadelphia as the hotbed of F-bombs on Twitter?"
