An analysis by the firm Bay Alarm Medical looked at half a million geotagged tweets and found that Arlington sees about 265 sickness-related tweets per 100,000 residents. That puts Arlington No. 10 on a list of the “sickest cities” in the U.S.

New Orleans, Miami and Atlanta are No. 1-3 on the list, respectively.

The research also found:

  • Sickness tweets reach their height in December and January.
  • Sickness talk decreases as weather warms up.
  • Sickness-related complaints peak on Tuesday instead of Monday.
