Fairly Unscientific Insights
Now we will we engage in total speculation about Narendra Modi. Just for fun.
- Both weekdays and weekends are tweet days, Narendra Modi is an equal opportunity tweeter.
- We did not detect any cases where a tag was spelled using different casing (Upper and lower case). We tentatively conclude that Narendra Modi is very careful when using tags.
- 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 2 hours, 40 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 11 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 spent tweeting and thinking about tweeting is 13 hours, 23 minutes per month.
- Only missing 1 day over the past month, @narendramodi is using twitter almost daily.
