Fairly Unscientific Insights

Now we will we submit to total speculation about Steve Scalise. Just for fun.

  • Approximately 85 percent of tweets are sent during the workweek (Mon to Fri). It seems @SteveScalise favors weekdays slightly over weekends.
  • 4.43 percent of the 158 tags had a number of upper and lowercase inconsistencies.This is a very consistent tagger that takes great care to get things right.
  • 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 58 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 3.87 tweets per day). If we furthermore assume that before the actual tweet takes place, two minutes of thought are spent in thoughtful contemplation about phrasing and possibly finding an image, then the total amount of time spent tweeting monthly and thinking about tweeting is 4 hours, 50 minutes.
