Gender differences in Twitter messaging

Numbers, by gender. Women type <3 more often.
    Something came my way this morning that I'd like to share with you all. Some researchers have categorised Twitter posts by the poster's gender and put together a couple of online analysis tools to extract and view the results.
   Put in a list of words and see which are used more by male posters or female posters. Or type in a single word to the detailed query box and see what words often accompany it for each gender.
    It's a fascinating tool, I have had to be careful not to waste too much time playing with it at work.


  1. Ooooops where did that time go?

    Typed in words from my blog and the only ones which came op strongly M were garden quite strong and kitchen, just registered!

    My conclusion has to be males can't even twitter whatever that is.

    In desperation I thought I would risk typing in penis just to boost the boys score, seems it is more interesting for girls to twitter about, wonder what hey are saying?

    Thanks for a few minutes fun.

  2. Well I don't twitter but I had a go and put in the first two words that popped into my head, horizons and donate. They came up as 48% male and 52% female........
