The team at Vertaline, who created the map, scanned tweets in 462 specific U.S. locations. The phrase "Good Morning" was tracked between June 20 and July 1 and "F*** You" was tracked between July 14 and 24.

You can set the map to show "Good Morning" or "F*** You," and "Absolute" and "Relative" distribution of tweets at a time, as compared to over the whole day.
