Study of tweets claims Mass. is smartest state

Posted: Updated:
(MyFoxBoston.com) -- A California-based company's Twitter study suggests Massachusetts residents are among the nation's brightest.

Movoto created a 3-d interactive map to chart the nation's IQ levels and Massachusetts came out on top.

The company used a computer algorithm to collect data from 500,000 tweets and scored them based on spelling, grammar, and word choice.

All of the New England states were among the highest ranking, along with North Dakota, Minnesota, and Montana.

Alabama, New Mexico, Louisiana, and California were the lowest ranked states.

The study found the state-by-state results matched up to the most recent performance statistics in those states.
