This website is a collection of notes.


@d2s on GitHub. ~166 are following me there, while I have followed 619 GitHub accounts. GitHub has been useful for keeping up with latest tools, as it shows a feed of starred projects from people that I'm following, allowing to discover potential tools & projects more easily.


I have been using Twitter since 2007. Over the years, the service has changed a lot, and often clearly not to a good direction. Still I kept using it, week after week. Looking back now, it feels a bit odd.

On my @autiomaa account, at the moment of writing, 3949 are following me. Following 3038 Twitter accounts. 73142 tweets in total over the years. That is at least ~16+ tweets per day. Most likely should have spent more time writing blog posts instead of tweets.

Total number of characters?

If an average tweet would be X characters:

Amount of characters
Per tweetIn total
20 characters~1462840 characters
40 characters~2925680 characters
50 characters~3657100 characters
100 characters~7314200 characters
120 characters~8777040 characters
140 characters~10239880 characters
180 characters~13165560 characters

Time wasted?

Amount of lost time? Probably a lot.
If one tweet took X seconds to write:

Amount of lost time
Time per tweetIn total
20 seconds~1462840 seconds
~24381 minutes
~406 hours
~17 days
30 seconds~2194260 seconds
~36571 minutes
~610 hours
~25 days
50 seconds~3657100 seconds
~60952 minutes
~1016 hours
~42 days
60 seconds~4388520 seconds
~73142 minutes
~1219 hours
~51 days

And that number does not include the amount of time spent on reading shared content from others. Have spend much more time reading than writing, so the overall number of hours (and days) spent is a lot more. Have learned a lot, but could have used time more productively.

Note: Manually updated numbers at the moment,
until I will figure out how to integrate Twitter
data updater script to Eleventy build process.
