Not the greatest award to win, but it turns out Manchester in the UK is the rudest destination in the world, closely followed by El Paso, Texas, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
An accolade that will probably not be picked up by the local tourism board, destination check-in service FourSquare discovered that people using the service in Manchester swear more than any other country in the world.
The tech-heads at FourSquare ran a query (detailed breakdown as to how they did it) on all the multi-million bits of data that it collects every day - such as location and words that people write every time they add a tip to a check-in point somewqhere.
Cross-referencing the data against known swear words, engineers found that tips left against locations in Manchester featured the highest number.
"Manchester United are sh*te", would be a likely message left close to the football club's ground at Old Trafford.
Thankfully for the UK as a whole, Manchester is the only British city in the top 20, with 18 belonging to the US and Melbourne in Australia also featuring.
Clearly the US-centric nature of FourSquare has had an affect on the results (it should monitor what drivers shout from their cars in Paris or Rome, for example!), but a serious point can be taken from the idea of mining the data.
Examining what people are saying in their tips about a location (or subsequent Tweets or status updates on Facebook) is a quick and easy way of identifying individual problems or wider issues visitors might have with a location.
