Fairly Unscientific Insights

Now we will we surrender to speculation about Neymar Jr. Because we can.

  • Approximately 80 percent of tweets are sent during the workweek (Mon to Fri). It seems @neymarjr 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 12 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 0.86 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, 4 minutes.
  • 12 percent of the 158 tags had a number of upper and lowercase inconsistencies. This indicates that @neymarjr is mostly consistent, but perhaps sometimes in too much of a hurry to enter the tags correctly.
  • Only missing 5 days over the past month, @neymarjr is using twitter almost daily.
