Today is my Alive Day, the anniversary of the day I almost died but didn’t. On this day 14 years ago, an RPG tore through the cockpit of the helicopter I was flying over Iraq, taking my legs and partial use of my right arm with it.— Tammy Duckworth (@SenDuckworth) November 12, 2018

Fairly Unscientific Insights
Here we submit to total speculation about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Just for fun.
- 7.25 percent of the 69 tags had a number of upper and lowercase inconsistencies.This indicates that @AOC is mostly consistent, but perhaps sometimes in too much of a hurry to enter the tags correctly.
- 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 3 hours, 4 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 12 tweets per day). If we furthermore assume that before the actual tweet takes place, two minutes of thought are spent in thoughtful deliberation about phrasing and possibly locating the perfect image, then the total amount of time monthly spent tweeting and preparing the tweets is 15 hours, 24 minutes.
- Approximately 76 percent of tweets are sent during the workweek (Mon to Fri). It seems @AOC favors weekdays slightly over weekends.
- Only missing 1 day over the past month, @AOC is using twitter almost daily.
