Good news for Arkansas in civility ranking

A progressive sort looking for rays of hope in a generally dreary political climate offers this link from Daily Beast: A state-by-state analysis of the propensity of a state's people to say hateful things — about women, blacks, Hispanics, gays, fat people, govt., etc. — on Twitter.

You have to dig deep, but there — in the very last graphic in the article — he found good news: Only five states have fewer derogatory tweets per 100,000 than Arkansas.

Are we really that civil? Or is it just that all the knuckle-draggers haven't found Twitter yet? (Some of them have, trust me.)

Louisiana, by the way, ranked as most derogatory, followed by Nevada and Texas.
