- Approximately 89 percent of tweets are sent during the workweek (Mon to Fri). It seems @SenWarren favors weekdays slightly over weekends.
- 2.61 percent of the 115 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 44 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 2.98 tweets per day).
