Very Unscientific Conclusions

This is where we surrender to speculation about Shah Rukh Khan. Because we can.

  • Both weekdays and weekends are tweet days, @iamsrk 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 22 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 1.51 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, 53 minutes.
  • 2.50 percent of the 80 tags had a number of upper and lowercase inconsistencies. This is a very consistent tagger that takes care to get things right.
  • Only missing 5 days over the past month, @iamsrk is using twitter almost daily.
