Sane IT exactly it is much the same with celebrities and sports figures. Really the tweets are just advertising and marketing carefully planned and worded to look spontaneous.

What accounts for the differences in font size?  I've seen font size used to make longer words and shorter words appear as similar in overall area -  long words are in smaller font, and short words are in a larger font.

The font differences in these charts go beyond that - the names aren't similar at all.  For example, there are two microscopic RED names nearly under "Pingree" which is BLUE on the house chart. At the same time, there are several tiny blue names in the gray space between blue and red.  If these were written in the larger fonts, it would help (a little) to bridge the gulf between the colors.

Exclusivity sells, unfortunately.

@tinym yes, there's a bit of a twist about working that out. Still all the marketing has everyone eager to purchase something even when they don't know what it is, and, of course, it doesn't exist.

@Ariella I haven't seen that one before! Sounds like the ad agency gets into a tough spot with the yet-to-be-invented product...

@broadway @tinym promotion so proactive it comes out before the book even exists -- rather like Vip in the movie "Lover, Come Back."

@Broadway interesting theory! You might be right about that.

@tinym, maybe he thought the social media activity would land him that book deal?

@Ariella I'm surprised too by people who think they can make comments like that fellow and think nothing will come of it. He could have saved all the info for a tell-all book in the future but he chose social media instead.

@Louise yes, I was thinking of that story, too. It always amazes me  that people will do these things on social media and not consider the consequences.
