Workers in Hawaii lead the nation in proclaiming love for their jobs on Twitter, a new study has found.

Twitter users are no doubt familiar with picturesque beach scenes, often taken from a beachfront restaurant, and an explanation that this was a person’s office for the day, followed by an “I love my job” exclamation.

Those and others were the sorts of posts examined by online job portal Monster Worldwide and social media analytics company Brandwatch, in a study released Wednesday.

Following Hawaii among the top 10 states for job-satisfaction-related Tweets were Utah; No. 3 Oregon; California, and Washington at No. 5; Minnesota; seventh-ranked Nevada; Maine; Arkansas and in tenth-place, Idaho.

The study, conducted between March 2014 and March 2015, also reviewed posts discussing hating one’s job. All bottom-10 states were in the Eastern half of the U.S., with about half of those states in the Northeast.

The bottom 10 states were Florida; West Virginia; No. 3, Delaware; Virginia; and Ohio in fifth place, followed by New Jersey; Pennsylvania; Rhode Island; Louisiana and No. 10, Maryland.
