When I was bleeding to death in my Black Hawk helicopter on that dusty field in Iraq, I didn't care if the American troops risking their lives to help save me were gay, straight, transgender, black, white, male or female. All that mattered was they didn't leave me behind. https://t.co/dsQhwW805o— Tammy Duckworth (@SenDuckworth) January 22, 2019

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

Our Rather Unscientific Conclusions
Now we will we engage in total speculation about Tammy Duckworth. Because we can.
- 3.33 percent of the 120 tags had a number of upper and lowercase inconsistencies.This is a very consistent tagger that takes great care to get things right.
- Assuming each tweet takes 30 seconds to type and send on average, then we can calculate the time spent tweeting over a one-month period is 1 hour, 11 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 4.73 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 time spent tweeting per month and preparing the tweets is 5 hours, 55 minutes.
- Most tweets were sent during the workdays (93 percent), Monday to Friday, and just 6.80 percent on weekends. This account is most likely used for business.
- Only missing 3 days over the past month, Tammy Duckworth is using twitter almost daily.
