Very Unscientific Conclusions
Here we submit to total speculation about @mike_pence. Because, why not.
- Just Tweeting 1 days during the last month, Mike Pence is just not much into Twitter it seems.
- 3.60 percent of the 111 tags had a number of upper and lowercase inconsistencies.This is a very consistent tagger that takes great care to get things right.
- Approximately 79 percent of tweets are sent during the workweek (Mon to Fri). It seems Mike Pence favors weekdays slightly over weekends.
- If we assume each tweet takes thirty seconds to type and send on average, then we can deternine the time spent tweeting over a one-month period is 16 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 1.12 tweets per day). If we also assume that before the actual tweet takes place, two minutes of thought are spent in thoughtful contemplation about phrasing and possibly locating a great image, then the total amount of time spent tweeting and preparing the tweets is 1 hour, 24 minutes per month.
