Demographics of Fast Food in America

Fast food restaurants have strong regional affiliations, and by analyzing Twitter and other social media services, we can figure out which restaurants are dominant in which parts of the country (based only on who's talking about them there). On the map, blue represents a particularly strong presence compared to other states. Giants like McDonald's are equally popular throughout the US, but smaller chains like White Castle and In-N-Out Burger have clear regional presence.
