The marketing site Abodo, which specializes in matching apartments and renters, just spent months analyzing tweets across the U.S. as a way to guide their clients to a suitable place to live.

"As part of our series looking at the Best Places to Live, we decided to look at the language Americans use when tweeting about different races, ethnicities, genders, religions, and sexual orientations," it wrote on its website about the study from June 2014 to December 2015 .

Mississippi isn't on the list of Overall Derogatory Language, By State. Our neighbor Louisiana is. At the top.

Mississippi also is at the low end of the scale for Anti-Black Tweets, By State. Louisiana does a little better at third place. And we're in the good part of the scale for Derogatory Language Against Women on Twitter. Guess who's No. 1.

If you said Louisiana, give yourself a gold star.
