Pure Speculation

Now we will we submit to total speculation about Rihanna. Because, why not.

  • Just Tweeting 5 days during the last month, @rihanna is just not much into Twitter it seems.
  • If we assume each tweet takes 30 seconds to type and send on average, then we can deternine the time spent tweeting over a one-month period is 10 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 0.71 tweets per day). If we also assume that before the actual tweet takes place, two minutes of thought are spent in deep contemplation about phrasing and possibly locating the perfect image, then the total amount of time monthly spent tweeting and thinking about tweeting is 53 minutes.
  • 16 percent of the 420 tags had a number of upper and lowercase inconsistencies.This indicates that Rihanna is mostly consistent, but perhaps sometimes in too much of a hurry to enter the tags correctly.
  • Approximately 77 percent of tweets are sent during the workweek (Mon to Fri). It seems Rihanna favors weekdays slightly over weekends.
