  • Only missing 5 days over the past month, Milwaukee Bucks is using twitter almost daily.
  • Both weekdays and weekends are tweet days, Milwaukee Bucks is an equal opportunity tweeter.
  • If we assume 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 10 hours, 34 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 42 tweets per day). If we furthermore assume that before the actual tweet takes place, two minutes of thought are spent in deep deliberation about phrasing and possibly finding an image, then the total amount of time monthly spent tweeting and thinking about tweeting is 2 days, 4 hours, 53 minutes.
