Very Unscientific Conclusions

This is where we surrender to speculation about Elizabeth Warren. Because we can.

  • Approximately 89 percent of tweets are sent during the workweek (Mon to Fri). It seems Elizabeth Warren favors weekdays slightly over weekends.
  • 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 42 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 2.80 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 finding an image, then the total amount of timeper month spent tweeting and thinking about tweeting is 3 hours, 30 minutes.
  • 1.82 percent of the 110 tags had a number of upper and lowercase inconsistencies.This is a very consistent tagger that takes great care to get things right.
