Fairly Unscientific Insights

This is where we submit to total speculation about Devin Nunes. Because, why not.

  • Both weekdays and weekends are tweet days, Devin Nunes is an equal opportunity tweeter.
  • 5.86 percent of the 256 tags had a number of upper and lowercase inconsistencies.This indicates that Devin Nunes is mostly consistent, but perhaps sometimes in too much of a hurry to enter the tags correctly.
  • Assuming each tweet takes 30 seconds to type and send on average, then we can deternine the time spent tweeting over a one-month period is 7 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 0.51 tweets per day). If we also assume that before the actual tweet takes place, two minutes of thought are spent in deep deliberation about how to phrase it and possibly locating the perfect image, then the total amount of timeper month spent tweeting and preparing the tweets is 38 minutes.
