State News

A survey of geotagged tweets over the last 30 days about “ending the lockdown” shows North Dakota leads the nation in such messages.

Interestingly, there is no statewide lockdown order in effect in North Dakota.

The phrase, “ending the lockdown,” has come to mean any restrictions put in place due to COVID-19 and not just specific in-home orders.

This includes tweets such as #endthelockdown, #endtheshutdown, #endlockdown, #openamerica, and many others. Over 50,000 tweets were tracked.

The top 10 states tweeting about lockdowns were:

  1. North Dakota
  2. South Dakota
  3. Vermont
  4. New Hampshire
  5. Massachusetts
  6. Rhode Island
  7. Wyoming
  8. Delaware
  9. New Mexico
  10. Nebraska
