Some stuff just for funsies...
In case you're wondering, there's no correlation between tweet length and favorites:
Also, the average length of DN tweets have gotten longer in the last 4 years, with a decided uptick in April 2018. I thought that this might have been the result of Twitter increasing the cap on tweet length from 140 to 280 but that happened in November 2017. (Apologies for the crammed x-axis labels. Click on the figure to zoom in.)
What about number of likes versus number of retweets?
Ok that's weird. What if we zoom in on those values that are fewer than 500?
So that initial weirdness indicates something kinda neat: if a tweet garners loads of "likes", it's not going to be retweeted. If it gets tons of retweets, it's not going to get many "likes." But maybe there's something to the year in which the tweet was produced?
Nope nothing there either. So, weirdly, DN tweets, are either heavily liked or heavily retweeted but not both.
