Very Unscientific Conclusions

In this section we engage in total speculation about ƿ૯ωძɿ૯ƿɿ૯. Because we can.

  • 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 27 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 1.81 tweets per day). If we also assume that before the actual tweet takes place, two minutes of thought are spent in deep contemplation about phrasing and possibly locating a suitable image, then the total amount of time per month spent tweeting and thinking about tweeting is 2 hours, 15 minutes.
  • We did not detect any cases where a tag was spelled using different casing (Upper and lower case). We tentatively conclude that @pewdiepie is very careful when using tags.
  • Both weekdays and weekends are tweet days, ƿ૯ωძɿ૯ƿɿ૯ is an equal opportunity tweeter.
