(Newser) – Twitter, in the words of Chris Matyszczyk at CNET, gives us a place "upon which to emit every milliliter of our inner bile." But which states are responsible for the "nastiest, most racist, and most sexist" tweets? A study from Abodo, an apartment-hunting website, analyzed 12 million tweets found using a list of NSFW keywords to come up with the answer. Here now are the 10 states most responsible for turning Twitter into an intolerant cesspool:

  1. Louisiana: 1,155 tweets containing derogatory language for every 100,000 tweets. That's approximately one in every 87 tweets.
  2. Nevada: 929 derogatory tweets for every 100,000 tweets.
  3. Texas: 925 derogatory tweets for every 100,000 tweets.
  4. Maryland: 895 derogatory tweets for every 100,000 tweets.
  5. Delaware: 812 derogatory tweets for every 100,000 tweets.
  6. Ohio: 758 derogatory tweets for every 100,000 tweets.
  7. California: 717 derogatory tweets for every 100,000 tweets.
  8. Michigan: 711 derogatory tweets for every 100,000 tweets.
  9. Georgia: 669 derogatory tweets for every 100,000 tweets.
  10. Rhode Island: 622 derogatory tweets for every 100,000 tweets.
