VSL// Twitter knows everything about you

Never forget that the Internet knows all. Need proof? The strangely enthralling (if kinda creepy) Sleeping Time
site, which can tell you when your favorite figure from the Twitterati is “sleeping.”

Or, to be more precise: “Our algorithm will determine the approximate sleeping schedule based on the time when he or she stays least active on Twitter,” the site explains. A cursory exploration reveals the following: Lady Gaga is quiet between 1 a.m. and 9 a.m., whereas Oprah signs off a bit earlier (11 p.m., but is back up by 6 a.m.). Lost mastermind Damon Lindrof tends to be up by 6 a.m. (lots of mysteries to solve!) after closing Twitter-shop at midnight; President Obama stays up till 1 a.m. We are eager (and scared) to know what’s next.
