The report, published in Britain’s Guardian newspaper found that San Francisco was the most beer-focused city in the country and listed Dallas as the most church-focused city in the nation.
“San Francisco has the largest margin in favor of ‘beer’ tweets (191 compared to 46 for ‘church’) with Boston (Suffolk County) running a close second,” the report says. “In contrast, Dallas, Texas wins the FloatingSheep award for most geotagged tweets about ‘church’ with 178 compared to only 83 about ‘beer.’”
Even though Twitter allows geotagging, a GPS features on mobile phones used to determine a person’s location, it only contributed to 1 to 3 percent of the tweets reviewed.
Previous studies conducted by Floatingsheep.org have found a larger concentration of bars in the Northeastern region of the U.S. and a larger concentration of churches in the Southern and Midwest areas.
