According to Pear they"took 2,000 tweets from the public timeline (in English and in the US) over a 2-week period from 11:00a to 5:00p (CST) and captured tweets in half-hour increments." They define babble as any tweet that just tells you what the person who tweeted is doing at the moment. A.K.A the "I'm eating a sandwich" tweet.

Information about the study here:

I agree with you about most statistics being meaningless as 90% of them are made up.  I should know since I made that statistic up myself. ;)
