How Happy is Twitter right now?

HuffPostUK has partnered with the upcoming feel good comedy 'Hector and The Search For Happiness' to find out how happy Twitter is at the moment and to give you the chance to make Twitter a happier place!

'Hector and the Search for Happiness' follows a quirky psychiatrist (Simon Pegg) who has become increasingly tired of his humdrum life. As he tells his girlfriend, Clara (Rosamund Pike), he hasn’t really tasted life, and yet he’s offering advice to patients and it doesn't feel right. So Hector decides to break out of his routine life and, armed with courage and child-like curiosity, he embarks on a global quest in the hope of uncovering the elusive secret formula for true happiness.
