You might say we have too much time on our hands, but we were playing around with a tool called Twitter StreamGraphs from Neoformix to see what people were thinking about when their Twitter updates contained the words “olive oil.”

It struck us how different the words were than those most mentioned in Olive Oil Times, which we found in our analytics: virgin, extra, California, times, health, Davis, cook, Australia, council, new, produce, business, review, Mediterranean, producer, diet, world.

In contrast, those who mentioned olive oil on Twitter in the past few hours were clearly discussing its immediate application in their meal: butter, bread, salt, garlic, tomato, beef, lemon, pepper, pasta.

The conclusion we drew from the thirty minutes spent on this fascinating study? Time for lunch.
