Messages that include Zoom links were causing the program to crash. I filtered these messages.
Chats that are exported without media were causing the word-cloud plot to have a giant “media omitted” phrase. Fixed this.
I added two functions for plotting the message counts per day and per month.
Figures of my chats
Let’s look at some plots now.
Naturally the peak time is the afternoon for me due to time zone difference, and we text before I go to bed too. Except Tuesday, the distribution over days is pretty much uniform.
We text throughout the day and the frequency increases towards afternoon. Tuesday is again the day with the least amount of texting.
Daily pattern has two peaks. Weekly texting pattern is much different compared to the one with my mom.
Hourly texting distribution is pretty much uniform. I was not in the U.S. during last summer, so the frequency peaked there.
10+ years of friendship. Interesting monthly plot. I really do not know the reason behind it.
High school friend. We talk a lot about football (soccer). The frequency peaks on Tuesday-Wednesday and in the weekend at ~2pm Chicago time because of the matches. Monthly frequency increases starting in January and peaks in June, overlapping the end of the football season.
A friend in the U.S., apparent from the hourly plot.
