Fairly Unscientific Insights

In this section we submit to total speculation about Kate Perry. Because, why not.

  • 16 percent of the 184 tags had a number of upper and lowercase inconsistencies.This indicates that KATY PERRY is mostly consistent, but perhaps sometimes in too much of a hurry to enter the tags correctly.
  • Both weekdays and weekends are tweet days, KATY PERRY is an equal opportunity tweeter.
  • Assuming 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 27 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 1.83 tweets per day). If we furthermore 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 spent tweetingper month and preparing the tweets is 2 hours, 17 minutes.
