Very Unscientific Conclusions

In this section we surrender to speculation about @SenWarren. Because, why not.

  • If we assume each tweet takes thirty seconds to type and send on average, then we can calculate the time spent tweeting over a one-month period is 43 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 2.91 tweets per day). If we furthermore assume that before the actual tweet takes place, two minutes of thought are spent in deep deliberation about phrasing and possibly finding an image, then the total amount of time spent tweeting and thinking about tweeting is 3 hours, 38 minutes monthly.
  • 3.96 percent of the 101 tags had a number of upper and lowercase inconsistencies.This is a very consistent tagger that takes great care to get things right.
  • Only missing 4 days over the past month, Elizabeth Warren is using twitter almost daily.
  • Approximately 89 percent of tweets are sent during the workweek (Mon to Fri). It seems Elizabeth Warren favors weekdays slightly over weekends.
