Twitter Brain: Mensch Analysed

TWITTER-BRAIN

Guido has heard it said many times that Louise Mensch needs analysis and today we have analysed her Twitter account. Currently she is tweeting pretty incessantly about Tim Hunt, the professor hounded out of public life for making a few humorous remarks about women in science. The twitterati’s feminazi wing took exception and the Nobel prize winning scientist was ruined. Louise has documented the case for the defence in detail on her own website

Anyone who follows Louise will know that she is tweeting about it a lot. By “a lot” Guido means continuously. Incessantly. Relentlessly. Non-stop. Around the clock. On average currently Louise is tweeting 280 times a day, about once every 5 minutes, 24 hours a day…

Quote of the Day

Dr Alexander Kogan, the app developer who originally harvested the Facebook data, said…

But I think the reality is it’s not that. If you sit down and you really work through the statistics and you think what does a correlation of point three means, those claims quickly fall apart. And that’s something any person with a statistical background can go and do.”
