Pure Speculation

Now we will we engage in total speculation about Narendra Modi. Just for fun.

  • Approximately 75 percent of tweets are sent during the workweek (Mon to Fri). It seems @narendramodi favors weekdays slightly over weekends.
  • If we assume each tweet takes 30 seconds to type and send on average, then we can calculate the time spent tweeting over a one-month period is 4 hours, 3 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 16 tweets per day). If we furthermore assume that before the actual tweet takes place, two minutes of thought are spent in thoughtful deliberation about how to phrase it and possibly finding an image, then the total amount of time per month spent tweeting and thinking about tweeting is 20 hours, 16 minutes.
  • We did not detect any cases where a tag was spelled using different casing (Upper and lower case). We tentatively conclude that @narendramodi is very careful when using tags.
  • @narendramodi is on a streak and didn’t miss a single day of tweeting the past 30 days. That’s some serious Twitter Love.
