What does the sentiment score represent

I did not understand what does the sentiment score represent, what does the sentiment score tell us about the happy or sad sentiment of data set?

Does sentiment score if closer to 1 mean happy and far away from 1 mean sad?

Please help me get it


Close to 1 = most tweets are happy
Close to -1 = most tweets are sad

Around 0 = there’s an roughly equal number of happy and sad tweets (you can consider the dataset to be neutral in terms of happiness/sadness).


Thank you for the help @Sebgolos
