If using twitter:timeline/mention then it polls in any mentions during starting the route. We should defer this to the first poll after the route is started, so Camel startup faster and let other routes startup quickly too, eg
2017-02-14 11:23:07.853 INFO 15118 --- [ main] route1 : I was mentioned by Fri May 22 09:40:47 CEST 2015 (akoufoudakis) I just became a certified expert in Apache Camel (@cameltweet) development. Thanks @RedHatNL for making it possible. http:2017-02-14 11:23:08.082 INFO 15118 --- [ main] route1 : I was mentioned by Wed Apr 15 15:31:58 CEST 2015 (akoufoudakis) Good to know Apache Camel (@cameltweet) is used by @netflix. http:2017-02-14 11:23:08.282 INFO 15118 --- [ main] o.a.camel.spring.SpringCamelContext : Route: route1 started and consuming from: twitter:2017-02-14 11:23:08.282 INFO 15118 --- [ main] o.a.camel.spring.SpringCamelContext : Total 1 routes, of which 1 are started.
Those twitter mentions that are logged should come after the route is started
