People do a lot of things on Twitter. They post selfies, they talk sports, they rant about work, and they drop the F-bomb a lot. It's a given that people curse because sh't happens, every second of every minute of every day. But if you're curious about how much people do curse, then check out FBomb.co.
The site tracks F-bombs as they're dropped in real time. Each F-bomb is tacked on a world map so you can check out which countries curse the most. It shouldn't be a surprise that New Yorkers rank first in terms of swearing.
Aside from location, you can click on the pins on the map to see the F-bomb tweet as well as the person who tweeted it.
The site was created by Martin Gingras, a junior at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, who explains: 'We talked about how swearing can completely undermine ones argument. Earlier that day we had been talking about the personal projects we were working and, somehow at this point we circled back to that topic. From there our conversation wound its way to how it'd be neat to map where people swear.'
