You Like Your Olive Oil With What?

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.

Seriously, there’s some­thing to be said (and we’re just the ones to say it) for tak­ing a peak at the vir­tual stream of con­scious­ness around our favorite topic.

As if that weren’t enough we checked out the other Neoformix tools to delve deeply (or, maybe not so deeply) into the minds of those who included the 8 char­ac­ters olive oil among their care­fully cho­sen 140.
