Pure Speculation

Here we submit to total speculation about Nancy Pelosi. Because we can.

  • Most tweets were sent during the workdays (91 percent), Monday to Friday, and just 9.50 percent on weekends. This is probably a work account.
  • 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 54 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 3.61 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 4 hours, 30 minutes.
  • 3.55 percent of the 141 tags had a number of upper and lowercase inconsistencies. This is a very consistent tagger that takes care to get things right.
  • Only missing 5 days over the past month, @nancypelosi is using twitter almost daily.
