WEST Dunbartonshire has been revealed as the happiest place in the UK, according to Twitter-related analysis.

Digital marketing agency Blueclaw tracked popular positive hashtags like #happy, #goodvibes and #happinessishere in more than 1,000 tweets over a seven day period, and scaled the results against each city’s population to reveal the happiest and unhappiest places in the UK.

And West Dunbartonshire came out on top, with the highest average of happy tweets per person.

Overall, almost half of the top ten happiest places were in Scotland, going by the popular social media feed.

However, recent statistics and surveys don’t agree with Blueclaws findings, with the government’s national well-being measures– which is based on a survey of around 150,000 participants across the UK – revealing that residents in West Dunbartonshire are amongst the unhappiest in the country.

West Dunbartonshire is also the joint-third most deprived area in Scotland alongside North Ayrshire, according to the 2020 Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation report, which measures the most and least deprived areas of the country.

The Post, unsurprisingly, found it difficult to find any serious tweets regarding the happiness of West Dunbartonshire residents during the given time period.
