Is it brunch time? Someone is finally asking the important questions in life… defining brunch time using on twitter tweets timing. I liked the method used to define the interval of lunch which requires no more than high school math and also the question. From anthropological point of view it is interesting for me to see if different locations in the world define breakfast \ brunch \ lunch in different time. I.e in Spain people each lunch at 14 while in Israel they eat at 12. Also maybe interesting to compare tweets with pictures to tweets without pictures. My assumptions is that tweet without pictures are people on the way to brunch and would be a bit earlier comparing to tweets with pictures which are tweeted during the brunch.
