Are people more likely to say that they love or hate their jobs on Twitter? Does the ratio of love to hate tweets vary by industry, gender, day of the week?
Overall, people on Twitter seem more happy than upset with their jobs—or at least they're more likely to post positive tweets than negative tweets. Of the 1.1 million messages examined, 942,000 included the phrase "love my job," whereas only 201,000 included the phrase "hate my job."
People working in certain industries are much more likely to tweet about loving or hating their jobs, the analysis found. For example, 37% of all the "hate my job" tweets examined came from retail workers.
Women are much more likely to tweet both about loving and hating their jobs; some 67% of the examined "love my job" tweets and 61% of the "hate my job" tweets were sent by women.
The ratio of love tweets to hate tweets peaks on Fridays (e.g., that's when there is far more positivity expressed than negativity) and hits a low on Sundays.
