Fairly Unscientific Insights

Here we submit to total speculation about Kate Perry. Because we can.

  • Both weekdays and weekends are tweet days, @katyperry 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 24 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 1.62 tweets per day). If we furthermore assume that before the actual tweet takes place, two minutes of thought are spent in thoughtful deliberation about how to phrase it and possibly finding an image, then the total amount of time per month spent tweeting and thinking about tweeting is 2 hours, 1 minute.
  • 15 percent of the 92 tags had a number of upper and lowercase inconsistencies. This indicates that @katyperry is mostly consistent, but perhaps sometimes in too much of a hurry to enter the tags correctly.
