Pure Speculation

In this section we submit to total speculation about Lady Gaga. Because we can.

  • Approximately 77 percent of tweets are sent during the workweek (Mon to Fri). It seems @ladygaga favors weekdays slightly over weekends.
  • 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 16 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 1.13 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 1 hour, 24 minutes.
  • 13 percent of the 257 tags had a number of upper and lowercase inconsistencies. This indicates that @ladygaga is mostly consistent, but perhaps sometimes in too much of a hurry to enter the tags correctly.
