Tweets Could Help Predict An Individual’s Mental State

A new study has shown that an individuals’ mind state can be understood through his or her tweets. The language used in the tweets is very well enough to understand the loneliness and mental condition of the person. Loneliness is found to be affecting 1 in 5 adults and giving rise to suicidal tendencies in an individual. There are high possibilities that cardiovascular disease and depression could also set in. The US researchers from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine have at present developed a system that can help identify the people dealing with loneliness based on their tweets. The researchers are taking the help of health programs to people get out of their mental condition.

The researcher Sharath Chandra Guntuku and his colleagues have developed the system using specific topics and themes that can be associated with loneliness to identify the sufferers. The people posting tweets related to loneliness were found to be dealing with some mental health concerns or substance abuse and insomnia. The mental issues are considered to be slow killers that can push an individual to take an extreme step. The basic goal is to identify the health conditions associated with the themes and create a long-lasting impact on public health. The people dealing with anger, depression, loneliness, and anxiety generally tend to express a lot of stuff through writing sad, lonely, and raging quotes. The goal is to build a loneliness prediction system.

Similarly, as per a Danish analysis, many of the men and women with cardiac diagnoses show loneliness to be the basic cause of death. According to Anne Vinggaard Christensen from Copenhagen University Hospital, poor social support is found to have a negative impact on the heart. The feeling of security, happiness, trust, and safety is known to help keep the stress levels in control plus also keep the heart healthy.
