Canada Can you spot the difference between Canadians and Americans on Twitter?

If you follow enough Canadians on Twitter, you’re more likely to read cheerful words – thanks, amazing, please -- and see an unusual number of smiley emoticons cross your screen. Americans, on the other hand, tend to tweet more emojis, swear words and expressions of negative emotions like hatred and anger.

That’s according to analysis of 37 million tweets from both sides of the border by linguistic experts from McMaster University. And while the findings appear to reinforce the stereotype of Canadians as friendly and Americans as brash, researchers say there’s more to the story.
