Pure Speculation

This is where we submit to total speculation about Lady Gaga. Because, why not.

  • 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 20 minutes (30 seconds times 30 days times 1.37 tweets per day). If we also 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 per month spent tweeting and preparing the tweets is 1 hour, 43 minutes.
  • 13 percent of the 313 tags had a number of upper and lowercase inconsistencies.This indicates that Lady Gaga is mostly consistent, but perhaps sometimes in too much of a hurry to enter the tags correctly.
  • Approximately 78 percent of tweets are sent during the workweek (Mon to Fri). It seems Lady Gaga favors weekdays slightly over weekends.
