Our Rather Unscientific Conclusions

Now we will we engage in total speculation about Justin Bieber. Because, why not.

  • Assuming each tweet takes thirty seconds to type and send on average, then we can calculate the time spent tweeting over a one-month period is 15 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 1.01 tweets per day). If we furthermore assume that before the actual tweet takes place, two minutes of thought are spent in deep deliberation about how to phrase it and possibly locating a great image, then the total amount of time monthly spent tweeting and preparing the tweets is 1 hour, 15 minutes.
  • Approximately 80 percent of tweets are sent during the workweek (Mon to Fri). It seems @justinbieber favors weekdays slightly over weekends.
  • 9.73 percent of the 298 tags had a number of upper and lowercase inconsistencies.This indicates that @justinbieber is mostly consistent, but perhaps sometimes in too much of a hurry to enter the tags correctly.
  • Just Tweeting 2 days during the last month, Justin Bieber is just not much into Twitter it seems.
